Jose Mourinho is not going to apologise for his behaviour during his team’s 3-2 defeat to Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup.

Mourinho’s spokesman, Eladio Parames, told Spanish newspaper El Mundo that “Jose will not ask for forgiveness. He firmly believes that he was defending the interests of Real Madrid.”

The Portuguese coach poked a finger in the eye of Barcelona assistant Tito Vilanova after a wild tackle by Madrid defender Marcelo on Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas sparked a scuffle between the sides at Nou Camp on Wednesday.

Mourinho was seen making gestures toward Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Daniel Alves. He later made a derogatory remark about Vilanova and accused Barcelona’s ball-boys of time wasting.

Parames said that the former Chelsea coach has not been swayed by the criticism he has received. “Mourinho doesn’t care what the press says, he only cares about what Madrid’s fans think,” Parames said.

Last April, the clubs played four matches in 18 days which led to Mourinho being banned for five matches for alleging that referees and Uefa favoured Barcelona.
