Promising youngster Alvaro Morata netted the winner in Sunday's encounter, and Mourinho was quick to point out that he iss the one who gave the 20-year-old a chance to prove his worth.

"I was the one who brought him to the first team. I was the one who promoted him to the first team during three consecutive pre-seasons," Mourinho stated at a press conference. "I was the one who insisted on giving him a contract for the first team and prevented him from leaving.

"We have [Karim] Benzema and [Gonzalo] Higuain, and you would all call me crazy if I played Morata ahead of them. People talk a lot, but we are just doing our job here.

"I don't know whether it's opportunistic, but I'm the one who played Morata. It wasn't me who let go of [Juan] Mata and [Alvaro] Negredo. I let Pedro Leon leave, but that's it."

Morata has netted once in three La Liga appearances this season.
