Real Madrid coach Mourinho: We need to do more than reach semifinals

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho admits reaching the Champions League semifinals isn't enough for a club of their stature.

Real face Borussia Dortmund in tonight's first-leg.

"Making it to the semi-finals isn't enough in this club. You have to give your all to make to the final and try to win it. Klopp is a fantastic coach; I think he's genuine and honest," said Mourinho.

"When I read that he's not much interested in Real Madrid and only worries about his team and their identity I expect nothing less than a Borussia with an attacking style that's going to go all out. It's their philosophy and he's very honest whenever he speaks. I can't expect anything less than that.

"I rely on individual quality and the collective quality of this team. We have a way of playing that's well known, we've been on the brink for three years and we have a dynamic that guarantees quality. I also rely on mindset because the players want and deserve to go to Wembley."
