Real Madrid coach Jose
Antonio Camacho was left fuming at the "catalogue of mistakes" from his
side in Saturday's 1-0 defeat away to Espanyol.
Ronaldo missed a penalty and Real had two defenders sent off on their
way to what was a second successive defeat, following their 3-0 loss at
Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League in midweek.
"The game was a catalogue of mistakes and missed chances," Camacho
recognised. "I don't like to look for excuses in defeats. There was a
lot of nonsense. Everyone should have been a lot calmer.
"I'm equally angry after every defeat. I like it when we play football
and today we didn't do that. I'd rather not talk about the refereeing.
The officials are human and sometimes they do well, sometimes badly."
Camacho, already missing Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo through injury,
chose to drop England midfielder David Beckham and Spanish striker Raul
but the team showed little or no improvement.
"The new players were brought in to give the team a fresher look,"
Camacho said. "Whenever a team loses, it's the coach's fault, although
people are free to make their own minds up."
