Aug 13, 2010 - Munich, Germany - Real coach JOSE MOURINHO at the 4:2 victory of Real Madrid against Bayern Munich at the Franz Beckenbauer farewell match in Munich, Germany.

Having spent the last few years away from our English game and now taking on a new chapter in the amazing managerial career in Madrid, you have to love Jose because the guy will simply tell it exactly how it is and he won't pull any punches!.

First he talks of Liverpool's decline, how Arsenal have no more excuses, Man City's money and how Rafa Benitez will never do any better than he did at Milan!.

He said about the job Roy Hodgson now has at Liverpool:
“It is very difficult work for Roy to do it with Liverpool as, over the last years, they have been getting worse, worse and worse. The Liverpool of 2004 was better than the Liverpool of 2005, 2005 was better than 2006 and 2006 better than 2007. And they arrive at a situation now where, but for Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard, Pepe Reina, Fernando Torres, if his head is there, it is very difficult for Roy to make Liverpool champions. He needs time and it’s not easy because I don’t think they went in the right direction.”

He then spoke of Manchester City and Sir Alex's comments about their Kamikaze spending. He said:
“When Sir Alex spoke about kamikaze spending, if he was talking about (City) eating the market, I agree with him. But if they have the money, they can do it and, if they have the ambition to win the Premier League, they can do it. If someone wants to compete with them for a player it is very difficult because they are dominant in the market.

The player they say they want is the player that they get. I was interested in [Aleksandar] Kolarov when I came here to Madrid, but I couldn’t compete with City as they went to values that I couldn’t.”

He then went on to speak about Arsenal and Arsene Wenger's youthful side. He said:
“I don’t think Arsenal can win. Year after year it looks like they will but no. It’s always the same type of comment, ‘It’s a young team, it will be next season. I remember we played them in a Carling Cup final [in 2007] with a team of young boys, but they are no longer a team of young boys. They are now a team of 25, 26, 27-year-olds.

Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott, Gael Clichy, Alex Song, Bacary Sagna – they’re not a team of kids any more, they’re of an age to win things, but I don’t think they will do it.

I believe Chelsea and Manchester United can win the title and, of course, Manchester City because they have a great squad. That’s it.”

Finally he saved the best till last when he spoke of Rafa Benitez taking over at Inter Milan from what he has achieved there in recent seasons. He said:
“Inter is a dream job because he has three trophies (to defend). I don’t have that at Madrid. He is lucky, but I wish him well. One thing is certain, Benítez won’t do better than me at Inter. Another thing is also true that, should he lift the Intercontinental Cup, he will have only won two games compared to my 13. Therefore it will be my trophy and not his.”

Ladies and Gentleman, the "Priceless" Jose Mourinho!
