Getafe-Real Madrid reactions: Ángel Torres says it wasn't a penalty, José Mourinho cagey, Dani Parejo argues Geta could have equalised

Ángel Torres: "Madrid didn't deserve this result. An error made the difference between us and them, but, well, this isn't our league, and we gave a good account of ourselves.

"Di María's penalty wasn't a penalty. If that merited a whistle you'd see 20 every day. Referees are human and make mistakes. Now we need to think ahead to Thursday and the Copa del Rey knockout stages.

"Dani Parejo? Madrid's idea is to recover, but we have to speak later."

Dani Parejo: "We had opportunities to level the game. We came out strongly, as this is a match that always motivates you to play well. Against Real Madrid we wanted to do our best to avoid what happened last year.

"Despite losing we played well. We had a positive mindset at all times: despite going two-nil down early on it was an open match. We gave Real Madrid some dangerous moments and the coach congratulated us despite our loss."

"The penalty? It was doubtful.

José Mourinho: "Penalties, I've only seen on TV, like that of weeks ago at Osasuna and Cristiano Ronaldo's at Camp Nou. From the bench it was difficult to see today's.

"It was a strange game: at the beginning it could have been a thrashing, but at the end of the first half it felt like we'd lost control and had to change focus. In the second half we started well and that calmed us, but Arbeloa's red card and the Getafe goal made us suffer untol the last second.

"Kaká is back and that's fantastic news for Real Madrid and the world of football."
