Mourinho a ´scourge´ on Spanish football

Departing Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has been described as a “scourge on Spanish football” by rivals Barcelona’s vice-president.

Carles Vilarrubi launched a scathing attack on the Portuguese after Madrid president Florentino Perez announced on Monday that he would be leaving by mutual consent, despite having three years left on his contract.

“I said this three years ago through other means and now that he is no longer coach I can repeat what I thought then, that Mourinho would be a scourge on Spanish football. Now he no longer is,” Vilarrubi declared on Radio Catalunya.

Mourinho worked at Barcelona under Bobby Robson and Louis van Gaal but after he left in 2000 his relationship with the club became strained, and his behaviour in clashes against them for Inter and Real Madrid did little to help.

Vilarrubi, who has been vice-president at Camp Nou since July 2010, insisted the departure of Mourinho will be a good thing for Spanish football.

“Seeing him leave is positive for Spanish football because he did not make for a positive climate,” he added.

“Madrid don’t care, although results have not accompanied him.”

crazy comment from a crazy guy. it was because of JOSE MOURINHO that the El Classico had more meaning than ever before. It was jose’s character that made la liga more interesting than EPL. Barca’s VP should thank jose rather than ridicule him
