Spain and Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta shared his disgust for Jose Mourinho and his brand of football during an interview today with El Pais newspaper.
Here’s what he’s quoted as saying:
“You just have to look at the facts. Yes he damaged Spanish football, in general more harm than good. But I don’t like talking about that person at all. So if you don’t mind, we’ll leave it at that.”
In Mourinho’s psyche, he’ll probably see Iniesta’s quote as a victory in that he was able to get under the skin of one of the Barcelona legends.
What do you think? Did Mourinho do more harm than good to Spanish football while he was manager at Real Madrid? Or are Iniesta’s words just down to the rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona? Have your say in the comments section below.
