Reyes takes a swipe at Capello's tactics

MADRID (Reuters) - Real Madrid's Jose Antonio Reyes has taken a swipe at coach Fabio Capello's defensive tactics and the way he uses players outside their normal positions.

The Spain winger, on loan from Arsenal, said he was frustrated at his lack of opportunities and, like Brazilian forward Robinho last week, went public with his grievances.

'The team are disoriented because one day I play on the left, the next on the right. But it doesn't only happen with me, it's the same for my colleagues,' Reyes told radio Marca on Wednesday.

'Raul, Robinho and Guti all have to play in various positions but we are professionals and have to accept it.'

A 3-2 first-leg win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday eased some of the pressure on Capello after a series of poor home performances.

However, Reyes had to watch from the substitutes' bench.

'I warmed up for 45 minutes but Capello didn't use me. I'm annoyed because I didn't want to miss that game. I don't know what I have to do to play (regularly),' Reyes said.

Although Real beat Bayern, the team have been criticised for allowing their opponents back into the match after the break, having stormed into a 3-1 lead in the first half.

Spanish media have been quick to blame Capello for sending his players out for the second period simply to defend their lead. Reyes appeared to back their assertions.

'We play defensively because that is the way the coach wants us to play, to prevent the other team scoring. But you also have to score because draws are not good enough,' said Reyes.

'If we defended a little less we would have more liberty in attack. We are Real Madrid and should never go out to defend.'
