Luxemburgo launches into Real Madrid boss Mourinho: There was football before you!

Former Real Madrid coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo has launched into Jose Mourinho after their Champions League defeat to Barcelona.

Luxemburgo, whose reign as Real coach was a disaster, criticised Mourinho's approach and tactics.

"According to him, there was no football before Mourinho arrived," Luxemburgo told A Bola.

"Any other coach would have been crucified, especially if he was Brazilian. Pepe is no central midfielder and has no qualities to play there.

"He bet on three central midfielders and did not attack Barcelona at any time."
