“People ask me which are the best coaches I have had. For sure, Mourinho is one of them, “he said recently.
“We had a special relationship. It took a lot, so there were some conflicts, but it’s normal.
“He would challenge me and call my mistakes, but if I had played well he would have said something like,” you killed him today. ”
