Real Madrid boss Mourinho: Xavi should have won

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho feels Xavi should have won the FIFA Ballon d'Or.

The Barcelona midfielder was beaten by Lionel Messi for the gong.

"Messi is a player from another world but I feel sorry for (Wesley) Sneijder, Cristiano (Ronaldo), (Iker) Casillas, (Andres) Iniesta and Xavi, who is a guy I knew as a child and deserves to win one in his career," said Mourinho.

The Real coach was speaking after being awarded the coaching Ballon d'Or last night.
