Jorge Valdano, Ex-Player, Manager and General Manager of Real Madrid has launched a scathing attack on Jose Mourinho in his new book. As we have seen, the manager is not shy in responding to incidents such as these in the past, so expect fireworks tomorrow!
The great thing about Football is that everyone has an opinion. That's what makes websites such as mine of interest to people as I give my take on things and people will either agree or disagree.
However, on some occasions, some people give an opinion that turns into a personal attack and crosses the line. In this instance, Valdano has done exactly that and I cannot see Jose Mourinho just taking it lying down. Expect a similar response to that directed at Arsene Wenger last season, in his pre match press conference ahead of Swansea, tomorrow.
Valdano has said:
"He's a figure who is perfectly suited to these bombastic, shallow times. I couldn't understand him because he is in the antithesis of my sensitivity. Intelligence and ego are enemies. And when they collide, the ego wins.
If Guardiola is Mozart, that makes Mourinho [Italian composer Antonio] Salieri. He would have been a great musician if Mozart had never existed.
I've never heard him say a single thing about football worth remembering, whether in public or in private.
He had one of the best squads in the history of Real Madrid.
He always remained just outside the door of the Champions League. That was the big challenge which he did not manage to succeed at."
There are certain people that can rub people up the wrong way and everyone understands that but to have sat and watched Real Madrid fail in the Champions League but to win La Liga with a record points total and score the most goals over a Barcelona side, deemed to be the greatest of all time, deserves some sort of recognition.
As for his comment stating that he has never heard him say a single thing worth remembering? Well I beg to differ. Despite your allegiances, when Jose Mourinho talks, you listen because he is box office!
Jose Mourinho's record in football management speaks for itself and expect a Wenger type response when questioned about this tomorrow.
