Jose Mourinho is glad Manchester City were killed off in the Champions League group of death - because if it had been him, he would not have been allowed back into Madrid.

Real's 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium confirmed the Spanish giants will accompany Borussia Dortmund into the last 16. In contrast, City face a tough battle just to make the Europa League after collecting only three points from their first five matches.

Yet despite an enormous outlay on players, bankrolled by owner Sheikh Mansour, it is not thought manager Roberto Mancini is under threat, and Mourinho said: "I admire the fact that clubs support their manager. City is out of Champions League. But Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are very good teams and we knew a big team would be out."
