The ‘Special One’ was then refused to be drawn into an argument about the current state of things at Madrid, with Barcelona 13 points ahead at the top of La Liga.
- I have more experience of victories than defeat. I’ve had 400 games and only lost 10 per cent of them, so I have to adapt to this situation.
- What is happening is the fault of those who won the League. Everyone is guilty. Everyone must find motivation so that we can improve.
