Real boss Jose Mourinho denies humiliation by Barcelona

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho denied his team were humiliated by Barcelona after a 5-0 thumping at the Camp Nou.
Champions Barca were in scintillating form as they swept aside Madrid in Mourinho`s first El Clasico in charge.
"One team played to their potential and one didn`t," said Mourinho. "Loss, yes - humiliation, no. It was a defeat we deserved, we just weren`t good enough.
"I have spoken to my players and I told them the season has not ended. Who knows what can still happen this year?"
Barca played some majestic football with Xavi opening the scoring, Pedro doubling the lead, David Villa netting twice and substitute Jeffren finishing things off at the end, with Lionel Messi heavily involved in much of their play.
Mourinho, who had never before suffered even a four-goal loss as a professional football manager, said the 90 minutes did not show Madrid`s true colours.
"I don`t think you can say it reflected the difference between the two sides," added Real`s Portuguese coach after his side suffered their first competitive defeat of the season. "Also, the championship isn`t over today.
"We are two points behind the leaders but there are lots of games left to play. We have to show character, train hard and get back to winning. I wish we were playing tomorrow.
"You have to have character - when you lose by five goals you can`t leave crying, you have to go and work harder. You never want to lose by these numbers."
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola, who won his fifth Clasico in a row since becoming manager, said he was delighted to see his team play at their best in front of a global television audience thought to be about 400 million.
"We are proud because the world has seen us play the way we like to play," said Guardiola.
"I would like to take more points from Madrid but it`s not possible. That team, with all that power, are just two points behind, but we are satisfied."
