Real Madrid coach Mourinho: Plenty like my style of play

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has shrugged off the critics of his style of play.

Mourinho has been dubbed a 'resultadista' by Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff for putting winning ahead of style.

"I win a lot," said the Portuguese tactician. "People get tired of watching my style of football and wait for me to do badly. But there are also people who admire my work and who like what I do.

"Many people at the UEFA Coach's Congress expressed that they liked the way I won the Champions League and they considered that I did an excellent job with Inter. I don't work to be compared to others.

"I do what I do and I am confident that the results obtained are the best argument to defend myself. There are times when I don't like what is being said, and I can imagine that there would be people that think a match wasn't good and that it was too defensive if we took 35 shots on goal and it ended 0-0.

"I live for football and my family. I don't have a social life. Everything I do is based on my work and my results."
