Jose Mourinho Creates Other Enemies

Ex- Chelsea and Manchester United Boss, Jose Mourinho is known to what may be termed as ‘speaking his mind.’

Nonetheless, his words, sometimes, are hurting with many of his comments branded as controversial.

This time round, he has attacked Celtic over their former coach, Brendan Rodgers’ joining Leicester City.

The Northern Irishman controversially walked away from his post at Celtic earlier this week to join the Foxes.

The decision has left a bad feeling behind in Glasgow, with the club on the cusp of securing their third successive domestic treble.

Neil Lennon has taken charge until the end of the season but fans have continued to let their feelings be known with a series of displays in the crowd slating their former boss.

Ex-Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who worked with Rodgers at Stamford Bridge, has now had his say on the situation.

The Portuguese hit out at Scottish football claiming it’s not as big as the Premier League, words that won’t be greeted well by Celtic supporters.

“If you say to me, am I surprised by Brendan leaving Celtic to go to Leicester, I would say no,” Mourinho told beIN SPORTS.

“The Scottish championship is not the same as the Premier League, with all due respect.

“Celtic is a giant club but the Premier League is the Premier League.

“I’m not surprised that he comes there.”

Rodgers hinted earlier in the week that the Leicester board told him it’s now or never, which would explain why he was so quick to jump ship to the King Power Stadium.

Despite that, Mourinho claimed that if he was Rodgers he would have handled the situation differently.

“I’m not surprised that he comes there,” he added.

“If I was in his position I would say to Leicester, ‘I want to come to you, but not now’.

“‘I want to come next season, I want to be champion in Scotland, I want to leave in the right moment’.

“In my opinion, the right moment would be pre-season.”

The 46-year-old suffered a difficult start in his first game as Leicester boss on Sunday, when Andre Gray struck a late winner for Watford at Vicarage Road.
