Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho reiterated the importance of having a balance, offensively and defensively, in a team amid attacks on his tactics employed during the Blues' past few games.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers accused his men of "parking two buses" during their crucial encounter in the Premier League on Sunday, while it was apparent that the west Londoners were very conservative against Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

"In this moment football is full of philosophers, full of people that understand much more than me," said Mourinho.

"The reality is always the reality. A team that doesn't defend well, doesn't have many chances to win.

"A team that doesn't score a lot of goals, if (it) concede lots of goals it's completely in trouble. A team without balance is not a team.

"When Atletico have the ball we have to defend; when we have the ball we have to attack.

"When they have the ball we have to try to stop them scoring; when we have the ball we have to try to score.

"This is the football that I know. (When the) opponent has the ball you have to work defensively, you have to be organised.

"You have the ball you have to try to play according to the qualities of your players and your opponent.

"In this moment - depending on the coach and the club - the critics speak.

"If your opponents are very fast on the counter and want space behind your defensive line, if you give them that space you are stupid."
