Mourinho was less impressed by the fixture scheduling which sees his side play three games in under a week. The capital club met Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday, played Sociedad last night and meet Espanyol on Tuesday night.
He said: "Why wasn't the Hercules-Valencia match played today? Valencia played [in the Champions League] on Tuesday. Why do we have to? I hope that whilst respecting the decision of the television stations there is a little more protection for the spectacle of football and things are more even in the future.
"We have to play again on Tuesday against Espanyol and it will be difficult. I don't understand this situation: Wednesday, Saturday, Tuesday...
"It seems that life is easier for some and more difficult for others."
