Mourinho lauds Madrid fightback

Jose Mourinho has lavished praise on his Real Madrid team, days after laying into them for defeat to Sevilla.

Madrid fought back from behind twice to beat Man City with a late goal from Cristiano Ronaldo.

"For me, this is typical of Real Madrid's DNA," said Mourinho. "More important is being proud of the team, no matter the result.

"I keep saying this to the players, when the feeling is that not in right direction, Real can lose matches fighting like animals like they did, but they cannot lose as they did in Getafe and Sevilla. We continued, we drew level and we carried on."
