Mourinho sad for "Chelsea family"

Jose Mourinho admits he was "sad" to see his old club Chelsea lose the Champions League final on Wednesday.

He said: "I'm sad. I think that for the Blues family, losing a Champions League semi-final to a ghost goal, another semi-final on penalties and now a final on penalties is too harsh and unfair.

"On top of that, Chelsea were the team who were closer to winning.

"There are wonderful players there and they do not deserve a defeat. But that's football and life continues."

But Mourinho was happy to see Manchester United's Portuguese contingent in Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani with winners' medals.

He added: "Congratulations to Manchester. To the manager Sir Alex Ferguson and all the players but especially the Portuguese ones - Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani.

"When the Portuguese teams only win in European competitions over many, many years it is important that the Portuguese players can be on the list of the privileged."
