Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho said he was "disgusted to live in this world" following the controversial Champions League semi-final defeat to Barcelona and insisted his side had no chance of coming back in the second leg at the Nou Camp.

Barca recorded a 2-0 first-leg win at the Bernabeu thanks to two late Lionel Messi goals after Madrid had been reduced to 10 men on the hour mark when Pepe was sent off. The Portugal international was shown a straight red card by German referee Wolfgang Stark following a challenge on Barcelona defender Dani Alves.

In the wake of that dismissal an angry Mourinho was sent to the stands, and he said in the post-match press conference: "Yes, we are out. Sometimes I am a little bit disgusted to live in this world, but this is the world we live in."

He added: "We will have to go to Barcelona and look for some pride, without Pepe who didn't do anything, without (Sergio) Ramos who didn't do anything and without a coach to sit on the bench."


Ramos also picked up a booking which will mean he is suspended for next week's second leg at the Nou Camp.

"As soon as Pepe was sent off, all of their problems were solved," continued Mourinho, whose side have had a player sent off in all four meetings with Barca this season.

"If, in a sporting sense, it's difficult to turn this around, I would say it's now mission impossible.

"If we go there (Nou Camp) and score a goal, they will kill us again. We have no chance.

"They have to get to the final and that's that."
