Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho said his side did not deserve to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after a controversial 2-1 win over 10-man Manchester United.
United went ahead in the last-16 second leg tie before Nani was controversially dismissed for a high challenge.
Cristiano Ronaldo, on his return to Old Trafford, then tapped in the winner after Luka Modric’s stunning equaliser.
«Independent of the decision, the best team lost. We didn’t deserve to win but football is like this,» Mourinho said. «I’m not speaking about the decision because I’m not sure about it.»
Then he added: «But independent of that the best team lost.»
