REAL MADRID I VALDANO
Valdano: "If Guardiola is Mozart, Mourinho is Salieri".
In the Italian version of his book, the ex-director general of Real Madrid critiicizes the ex-Real Madrid coach: "He’s the last person on my mind".
Jorge Valdano has criticised Mourhino again in the Italian version of his book “The 11 Powers of a Leader, Football as a School of Life”. This version includes new material previously unavailable in the Spanish edition of the book.
"I've never heard, in public or in private, a phrase of his on football that is worth remembering", said the ex-director of Real Madrid referring to the current Chelsea boss.
The relationship between Valdano and Mourinho was never good. "We could never understand each other as he’s the polar opposite to my sensitivity. Intelligence and ego are enemies and when they collide, ego wins", continued the Argentinean, who also then compared the Portuguese coach with Pep Guardiola: "If Guardiola is Mozart, Mourinho is Salieri".
Valdano also mentioned in the book that “Mourinho is a character perfect for these vacuous and controversial times".
