Manchester United's boss José Mourinho shared his views on football during an interview with France Football. Among other topics, the Portuguese boss revealed being a changed man, but those chances didn't include keeping himself out of trouble by aiming digs at Pep Guardiola or other European teams.
"The Special One" landed his first big blow when he spoke about Pep Guardiola. "Mou" adviced Guardiola to choose his next team wisely, so he can win the title regardless of the opposition.
"He should choose a team where no matter who coaches it, you always end up winning the title. He should go to a team that can be managed by the utility staff members and keep winning the title anyways," Mourinho stated.
The "war" between these tacticians seemed to be over once they joined the Premier League, but Mourinho's words hint he's not ready to stop provoking Pep.
But Mourinho didn't stop there, and also kept bashing other European clubs. This time, Bayern Munich was at the receiving end of Mou's words, hinting that their success is guaranteed each year by what other teams produce.
"In England, all the clubs have such economic power that the title race is open for all. That's not the case in Germany, for example. For instance, do you know when Bayern Munich starts winning the title each year? By stripping Borussia Dortmund from their best players. Götze, Lewandowski, Hummels...in England, no team can be as dominant as they are over there," Mourinho added.
Regardless of these taunts, Mourinho admitted he's trying to change, especially when it comes to the relevance of football in his life.
"Mourinho, the person, the man, tries to be the opposite as the persona I've created as a coach. I try to be calm and discrete. I go home and I can withdraw myself from wattching football. When I began coaching, I couldn't do that. I'm a more mature guy," the coach concluded.
