Madrid: Real Madrid great Alfredo Di Stefano criticized coach Jose Mourinho's tactics in the 1-1 draw against Barcelona, saying the team played like a mouse against a lion of a Catalan side.
Di Stefano, Madrid's honorary president, wrote in his weekly column in sports newspaper Marca on Monday that the Portuguese coach's team showed no "personality" after a result on Saturday that practically clinches Barcelona's third straight league trophy.
"Barcelona's football in the Bernabeu was simply brilliant. Their superiority was there for the whole planet to see," Di Stefano wrote. "Madrid was a team without personality. The decision to try and play Barcelona on the counterattack was clearly not the right one.
