Roma Boss Mourinho Reveals Real Madrid Sentiment

It might have been ten years this June since José Mourinho called it a day at Real Madrid, but he still keeps the Los Blancos close to his heart. The Special One, who is preparing to lead Roma into his third season in the Italian capital, has fond memories of his time in the Spanish capital.

Speaking exclusively to Corriere dello Sport, Mourinho shed light on his Real Madrid stint

“People may have a different perception, but I’ve always had an excellent relationship with the clubs I’ve worked for. I met a Mexican Madrid fan in Portugal recently and he greeted me with immense joy. I have always been a Madridista and always will be.”

Mourinho led Real Madrid to a record La Liga victory back in 2011/12, breaking a number of league records enroute. Surprisingly, he revealed it was the team he worked ‘least tactically’ with.

“The team I worked in the least tactically was Real Madrid. The result was 100 points, 34 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses, 121 goals scored, and more than 88 goals difference. I was working on discipline and game principles there.”

Mourinho led the Spanish heavyweights from May 2010 to June 2013, winning one La Liga, Copa del Rey, and Supercopa de Espana title each. His presence played a key role in breaking Barcelona’s hegemony under Pep Guardiola.
