Jose Mourinho admits he was ‘very violent’ and a ‘d***head’ to his Inter Milan treble winners – The Sun

JOSE MOURINHO admits he was a “d***head” to his Inter Milan Treble-winning side of 2010.

The Spurs boss also revealed he was violent with his players and told them “they had won the Scudetto of s**t” following a defeat to Bergamo.

Mourinho won the Serie A title, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League in 2009-10.

The Portuguese, 57, said: “I’m never fake, I’m original. It’s me and that’s it. I was also a d***head but that was me.”

Mourinho lost his cool with his Inter squad following the 3-1 defeat to Bergamo in January 2009.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I was very violent with the players — I told them they had won the Scudetto of s**t.

“It was only afterwards I understood I had hurt them and I apologised.”

Despite the highs and lows, the former Chelsea and Manchester United chief never felt as comfortable as he did in the San Siro dugout.

And the high point of his stay was the 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

He added: “I was at my best when I felt at home.

“That’s why, on May 22 in Madrid, I was content to experience the happiness of others, all the way from president Massimo Moratti to the people in the warehouse.

“I used to always think of myself first. At Inter, it was never like that.


“When you become a father, you understand that someone is more important than you.

“Just the other day I spoke to Alessio, my driver. That’s Inter for me. These are my people.”

Last night Inter announced their Uefa Cup-winning coach Gigi Simoni had died, aged 81.

Mourinho reveals his all-time XI of players he has managed including Cristiano Ronaldo and Ozil.. but NO Man Utd stars – The Sun

JOSE MOURINHO has revealed his all-time XI of players he has managed – with NO Manchester United players selected.

The Special One was appointed as United boss in May 2016, but despite winning the Europa League in his first season, fans never really took to him.

Mourinho was sacked in December 2018, his time at the club blighted by rumours of fall-outs with star man Paul Pogba.

Unsurprisingly the French midfielder doesn't make the all-star XI, as reported by AS.

And there are certainly plenty of surprises on omissions considering some of the world class players Jose has worked with in the past.

Sergio Ramos, David De Gea, Iker Casillas and Zlatan Ibrahimovic could easily have bagged a spot in the team.

And of course there is Mourinho's current star striker Harry Kane at Spurs – but he has only been working with the striker since the start of November.

In goal Mourinho has gone for Petr Cech, who was his No1 during some glorious spells at Chelsea.

In defence, John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho, two of Mourinho's rocks during his Chelsea days, are at centre-half, with Willy Gallas and Javier Zanetti occupying the full-back slots.

Zanetti is the only player to feature from Inter Milan, where Mourinho coached between 2008 and 2010.

The Chelsea core continues throughout the rest of the team.

Claude Makelele sits in the defensive midfield position. Frank Lampard play just in front of him alongside Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, who Mourinho managed during his time at Real Madrid between 2010-13.

Eden Hazard and Cristiano Ronaldo will cut in from the flanks to provide the goals and assists for frontman Didier Drogba.
