MADRID, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho admitted feeling angry at his side's dismal performance as they crashed to a 1-0 defeat in Granada on Saturday night.
Facing a side struggling against relegation, Madrid produced their worst display of the season, if not for several seasons to lose 1-0 thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo own goal.
But rather than Ronaldo's misfortune, it was the overall display from some of his players in the game, which annoyed him.
"There are some players who played 90 minutes and worked hard against Barcelona on Wednesday and others who didn't play and who were in the Directors Box or in the stand," he said in clear reference to Angel De Maria, Sergio Ramos and Fabio Coentrao, who were all suspended for midweek and didn't play, but who were in his side on Saturday night.
"I know why some players were tired, because they worked hard on Wednesday, but I don't know why some other players were tired," highlighted the Madrid coach in Sunday's papers.
"I am very unhappy at our first half, which was horrible, we dominated and we had chances to draw, but it was not enough to be satisfied with the overall display," said Mourinho, who contrasted the display from some of his players with that of the Granada side, who according to the Madrid coach had, "given their heart and soul to defend their lead."
He highlighted that attitude with the one shown by Angel de Maria, who visibly complained about an injury in the second half.
"If you are losing and a player is injured, he should carry on playing and work for the team as long as the injury is not serious. He can't stand there watching and waiting for the doctor to come onto the pitch," he said.
