The night of April 25, 2012 will forever remain in the memory of all madridistas, and not precisely for a happy reason, but quite the opposite. Real Madrid was eliminated in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals against Bayern Munich in the cruelest way possible at the Santiago Bernabéu after the penalty shootouts. Of course, neither the players nor José Mourinho, the coach that day, will ever be able to forget it either.

It was the Portuguese coach himself who acknowledged that his saddest day as coach of Real Madrid was that defeat against Bayern Munich. He revealed that he kept his manners both on the field and in the locker room after the setback, but he collapsed and started crying in the car on the way home.

"It was the first and only time I cried after a game. Obviously I didn't do it on the pitch or in the locker room, but in the car while I was driving on the way home, yes ," remembered the Portuguese, who also recounted a detail that occurred that same night. "I was completely devastated, and suddenly I received a call from Jorge Mendes asking me to do him a favor. He wanted me to go to Cristiano Ronaldo's house because he was devastated. 'I'm devastated too,' I said, but I did it. I got ready, wiped my tears, and went. We were all devastated," he revealed.
