Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho was delighted for Cristiano Ronaldo after his hat-trick in victory over Malaga.

Ronaldo's treble was his third of the season.

Mourinho said: "A coach doesn't mind what types of goals his team scores. A coach prefers goals he's prepared and talked about with his men, but he is also a football fan and believes some are truly memorable, like Cristiano's. Cristiano doesn't just serve assists, he also scores goals. That's his natural tendency. I'm very happy for taking three important points at a difficult stadium and for winning three difficult games in one week. My men deserve to have the day off tomorrow.

"We were greeted at La Rosaleda like at many other places. It doesn't matter. The important thing is that there is no violence in stadiums. I don't care if people sing against or insult me."
