Real Madrid lost 3-1 at home at the Santiago Bernabeu against their rivals Barcelona.
“There is no feeling of inferiority,” Mourinho told a press conference. “I wouldn’t change our situation with anyone else’s.
“My motivation is as strong as ever. Leaders in the Champions League, (joint) leaders in La Liga and you are asking me about motivation?”
Cristiano Ronaldo was jeered by some Real Madrid supports following a disappointing match against Barcelona.
“If he is like me he doesn’t listen to whistling,” said Mourinho.
“He was affected by losing a match, as we all were, but without ever losing his emotional balance.
“It’s normal that he is sadder today than he was 15 days ago but there is no drama about his situation.”
