Mourinho is not one to take a jab and not reply with an uppercut. That is exactly what Benitez got, as Mourinho said he destroyed Inter and poked fun at his weight. I’m still laughing people.
Benitez’s wife, Montserrat Searra caused quite a stir yesterday when she said her husband is always cleaning up Mourinho’s mess, after taking over at Chelsea, Inter and now Madrid.
The comments didn’t sit well with Mourinho one bit and has pointed out the fact that, Benitez was sacked just six months after taking over a treble-winning Inter.
“The lady is a bit confused, with all respect,” Mourinho said after Chelsea beat Barcelona 4-2 on penalties after drawing 2-2 with Barcelona in the International Champions Cup.
“I’m not laughing. Because her husband went to Chelsea to replace Roberto Di Matteo and he went to Real Madrid and replaced Carlo Ancelotti.
“The only club where her husband replaces me was at Inter Milan, where in six months he destroyed the best team in Europe at the time.
“And for her also to think about me and to speak about me, I think the lady needs to occupy her time and if she takes care of her husband’s diet she will have less time to speak about me.”
