Mourinho hits out at Barcelona & Uefa

Jose Mourinho believes Barcelona have already knocked Real Madrid out of the Champions League following his side's 2-0 defeat in the semi-final first leg.

Lionel Messi scored both goals at the Bernabeu to hand Pep Guardiola's side a comfortable advantage heading into the return fixture, but the focus of the tie at the Bernabeu was on the sending off of Pepe in the second half for a challenge on Dani Alves.

Mourinho was sent to the stands for his gesture towards referee Wolfgang Stark after the defensive midfielder's dismissal and the Portuguese coach concedes his side will find it difficult to progress to the final at Wembley.

"The return game is mission impossible,'' Mourinho told reporters.

''Barcelona have qualified for the final. Sometimes I feel disgusted about this football world of ours. Yes, we have already been knocked out.

''No one has any chance against Barca. Where does all this power come from? To win like this is very nasty.

''We had the intention to keep the game at 0-0, then bring on a striker, then a third phase with a No. 10 behind three forwards. But the ref didn't allow it.''

Mourinho declined to elaborate on his opinion of Stark and is adamant the sending off resulted in a forced change in his side's mentality.

"I haven't said anything to the referee. I simply laughed and gave some two-finger applause. If I said what I thought, my career would end today.

"I'll give one question. Why? Why Ovrebo, Busacca, Stark? In each semi-final it's the same. We're talking about an absolutely fantastic team. Why didn't Chelsea go to the final? Why were Inter saved by a miracle? At 0-0 I was going to bring Kaka on for Lass."
