Mourinho pleased with defensive display

Jose Mourinho thought his Real Madrid side defended better than they attacked despite cruising to a 3-0 victory in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie with Galatasaray.

• Yilmaz: Brave but outplayed
• Rigg: Gala play into Madrid hands

Real sauntered through the match, scoring twice before half time thanks to a delicate chip from Cristiano Ronaldo after a Mesut Ozil through pass, added to by Karim Benzema who finished smartly at the back post.

Substitute Gonzalo Higuain grabbed the third, nodding home from Xabi Alonso's free kick as Real landed one foot firmly in the semi-finals ahead of their trip to Turkey for the return leg.

Mourinho's former charge Didider Drogba went close on several occasions but Wesley Sneijder was substituted at half time after cutting a peripheral figure in the first 45 minutes.

Mourinho told Sky Sports: "I think we played seriously. The Spanish press were not so respectful in relation to Galatasaray but we were very respectful.

"We knew they were a good team with fantastic strikers; they had danger and we prepared very well from a defensive point of view.

"We defended better than we attacked because in attacking terms I think we lost the last ball, the last pass, we had easy transitions - three against three, three against four - we could have scored more goals."

Asked whether the tie was effectively over Mourinho replied: "If you score a goal they have to score five. I think the result is very good but in football I saw so many incredible things that nothing can surprise me and Istanbul is a difficult place to play.

"They have players with lots of experience, players with character, I think they will fight very hard against us. We have to go there very seriously because it is the only way to go through."

As for his reunion with Drogba and Sneijder, Mourinho added: "I was with them at the end of the match, (Didier) and Wesley. They are family - they weren't during 90 minutes but they are family."
