Football manager Jose Mourinho 'has damaged Real Madrid's reputation'

5th May 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Real Madrid football manager Jose Mourinho harmed the reputation of the club with his recent outburst after the first leg of the Champions League semi-final, according to former president Ramon Calderon.

Mourinho told reporters that it was "impossible" for his side to progress to the final at Wembley due to the favourable decisions awarded to Barcelona by match officials.

The football manager has been charged by Uefa for suggesting that there is something kind of systemic conspiracy to help Barcelona get through, although another controversial decision in the second leg had his players echoing these sentiments.

However, Calderon says that Real Madrid should be above complaining about referees after their own failure.

"To talk like that has been harmful for us," Calderon told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"Big clubs should not blame the referee for their mistakes or their defeats. What he [Mourinho] did in terms of talking about Uefa and referees is not acceptable at all."
