Jose Mourinho: I would be very sad if my players cheated to get Nani sent off

Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho says he hopes his side did not benefit from gamesmanship in their 3-2 aggregate win over Manchester United in the Champions League Round of 16.

"I know there was contact, [Alvaro] Arbeloa told me he thinks Nani didn't see him, but there is quite a violent contact," Mourinho said of the incident in which Nani was red-carded early in the second half.

"I would be very sad if it was cheating, as happened to us when we played against Barcelona with Busquets cheating," Mourinho added. "That kind of situation, if one of my players did that today, I would be very, very sad."
