Mourinho under criticism for using negative tactics

Mourinho under criticism for using negative tacticsLondon, Apr 19 : Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is under criticism for using negative tactics in his club's 1-1 draw against arch rivals Barcelona.

Madrid is eight points behind Barcelona in La Liga and faces the Catalans again in tomorrow's Spanish Cup final, then the Champions League semifinal.

Mourinho fielded a defensive line-up and saw Raul Albiol sent off, The Sun reports.

Dutch legend and former Barcelona boss Johan Cruyff said: "Mourinho is not a football coach. To play at home with seven defenders, you must be very afraid."

"It reminded me of last year's World Cup final. To my shame, Holland decided to stop Spain playing rather than play themselves," he added.

Even Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano said: "Barcelona play football and dance while Madrid just run. Barca were a lion, Madrid a mouse." (ANI)
