Madrid - Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, for one, is fine with Cristiano Ronaldo feeling sad.

As the Spanish champions prepared for Saturday's league match at Sevilla, Mourinho said "if Cristiano is sad and plays like this, perfect."

Ronaldo capped a two-goal performance in his last game with Madrid by expressing sadness for professional reasons.

Ronaldo brushed past Florentino Perez during the taking of the team's official photograph on Thursday responding coldly "everything OK" when the club president asked if he "was happier or not?"

Mourinho said Friday that "my only worry, if you could call it that, is my team's play in the league."

Madrid is already five points behind leader Barcelona after just three games.
