Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho has accused Rafael Benitez for Inter Milan’s poor performance. He said this after Benitez’s wife teased her husband was “cleaning up” Mourinho mess at Real Madrid.
Just likeMourinho, Benitez once managed Chelseaand Real Madrid, though he never replaced Mourinho directly at both clubs.
“The wife is a bit confused; her husband went to Chelsea to replace Roberto Di Matteo and to Real Madrid where he replaced Carlo Ancelotti. The only club he replaced me was Inter Milan ,where in six months he destroyed the best team in Europe” said Mourinho after Chelsea‘s win over Barcelona in the International Champions Cup.
“If she takes care of her husband’s diet, shewill not have time to talk about me,” Mourinho added.
Seara Montserrat, Benitez’swife, seems to have started a snappy relationship between the two managers, who have been successful in their professions and last clashed when they were managers of Chelsea and Liverpool in turn.
Around five years and seven managers were at Chelsea between Mourinho’s departure from his first invocation as Chelsea boss in 2007 and Benitez taking over in 2012.
