Former Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster has attacked Jose Mourinho for his team selection for their first-leg Copa defeat to Barcelona. Schuster feels Mourinho blew Real's chance of dumping Barca out of the Copa with his choices.

"That day we all agree, who knows more or less , that was a mess. A mess, horrible or whatever you want to call it, no disrespect to anybody," Schuster told Onda Cero.

"Seeing who was selected, I said to myself 'this is unbelievable'. No one knows what happened there, I would like to know what he was thinking to select this team. A player who had not played for a long time, Pepe in the midfield ... it was weird and it was time to eliminate Barca.

"It was a shame, because one-on-one you can say they're a match for Barca. If you fail sometimes you should not complain about the referee."
