Real Madrid coach Mourinho: Ferguson tactics had silenced Ronaldo - then Nani happened

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho admits Manchester United had silenced Cristiano Ronaldo until Nani's dismissal.

The former United star proved the matchwinner in last night's Champions League triumph.

"It is never easy to return to a place you've been before and no one has the right to criticize any decision of Sir Alex and they were very organized to stop Cristiano, his tactics were perfect.

"But Cristiano is the best and has shown this in the end," said Mourinho.
