Getafe coach Laudrup thrilled with Real Madrid upset

Getafe coach Michael Laudrup celebrated loud and proud after Ikechukwu Uche's amazing winner at Real Madrid last night.

Former Real Madrid star Laudrup was shorn of two of his best players, Ruben de la Red and Esteban Granero, because of an agreement with Real, but still managed to mastermind an amazing victory.

On his goal celebrations, Laudrup smiled: "I felt great because such a goal is so rare. Belenguer saw the players of Madrid celebrating their 'goal', which was never there, and with his experience was ready to quickly play the ball, initiating the counter-attack with Casquero and in the end for Uche to score a goal that was legal.

"Football is many things, including what happened with our goal. We did enough positive things today to win the game and I believe we thoroughly deserved these three points.

"It is impressive what these players are doing, I do not get tired to repeat that this group has a great attitude, incredible. We had many losses by injury, we were without De la Red and Granero and with four forwards in the end in the Bernabeu we were brave and in the end it produced a good result for us."
