Mourinho calls Barcelona a “small team”

Mourinho, whose Real Madrid side slipped to yet another loss to the European Champions League and La Liga champions, made his jibe about Barcelona, universally acclaimed as the world’s best team, after a post match spat.

“Real Madrid gave a spectacular performance from the first to the last minute.

“We came here to play. What I’m about to say is not a criticism, I’m just stating a fact: there were no ball-boys in the second half, which is something typical of small teams when experiencing difficulties.”
