Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says that Galatasary's second-half comeback against the Spanish side did not make him nervous.

Jose Mourinho has said that he did not get nervous as Galatasary scored three goals in 15 minutes against Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie this evening.

The Turkish side fought back from 4-1 down on aggregate to 4-3 thanks to goals from Emmanuel Eboue, Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba.

Speaking after the match, the Real manager said: "I wasn't getting nervous because I have no time for it. I am on the bench so I have no time to think or to feel it, they are strong, strong mentally.

"We are there, in the semi-finals and that is what that matters. Today is the kind of match where you have everything to lose and nothing to win. People think we are already in the semi-final and players that that feeling from the outside.

"I felt the team was ready to work hard and had the motivation to reach Wembley in the final. I don't know who we will play in the semi-final, it will be against a great team, that's for sure and we need to play the semi-final and enjoy it."

The Spanish champions progressed 5-3 on aggregate.
