Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has defended their celebrations for victory at Valencia. The passion shown by Mourinho and his players during the 3-2 triumph has been criticised by some for being over the top.

"Valencia should feel flattered by our celebrations. To celebrate like that during a game is normal. And for us to celebrate like that means we suffered. Valencia has to be a champion team to make us feel like that," reasoned Mou.

"As the game progressed, we felt it was more difficult. But critics say that if we do not celebrate the goals we are arrogant and if we do, we are still."
