Jose Mourinho lambasts Fabio Capello and Liverpool but respects Paul Scholes

The mouth: Jose Mourinho gets everything off his chest

Jose Mourinho believes Fabio Capello is the wrong man for England, asks why Steven Gerrard is still at Liverpool and insists he is still ‘The Special One’.

Jose Mourinho on… Fabio Capello

“He has a one-track relationship with players. Ask anyone here at Real Madrid. He can’t change. You cannot go around just shouting at players. They need to feel special.”

Mourinho on… England

“For me, it is a mess for England. Players need clear tactics. They cannot be confused about what they have to do. It is the manager’s fault. And it is a big shame.”

Mourinho on… Liverpool

“Manchester United would be a great challenge for me. But Liverpool is not the club for me. I know why, but I cannot tell you.”

Mourinho on… Steven Gerrard

“Gerrard for me is not in the right club. They have problems. They will not win anything. I do not know why Gerrard has stayed so long at Liverpool. He is very loyal. I watched him against Hungary. The best player on the pitch. I like him a lot. A leader. I admire him.”

Mourinho on… Manchester United

“They play the English way, hard and physical. Europe is different. Tactics, strategy, the players you have, the players you pick, it is very different to domestic club football. Manchester is a club who are proud and perhaps look at winning the League title as more important than anything else.”

Mourinho on… Paul Scholes

“Scholes? Fantastic. For me, why isn’t he playing for England. It is crazy. Only in England. Scholes is a great, great player. So experienced and still, for me, one of the best in the world in midfield. Manchester United are lucky to have him.”

Mourinho on… Sir Alex Ferguson

“Sir Alex is a great man, a great manager with a lot of respect from everybody.”

Mourinho on… Chelsea return

“I am careful what I say and what I think. For me it might be impossible. I don’t know. I am not saying I would not like to. Who knows? Football is strange and beautiful at the same time.”

Mourinho on… Frank Lampard

“He is like a good vintage wine. The bottle is never finished with certain players, and that is Lampard.”

Mourinho on… transfer targets

“Didier (Drogba), (Ashley) Cole and Gerrard are great players. They would be even better here at Madrid because I am here and they would have more freedom on the pitch. So I won’t say I am not interested. They would be welcome here. We will see. I don’t make promises I can’t keep, but I will try to get the best players for Real Madrid.”

Mourinho on… being special

“Am I still the Special One? Yes. The Special One. There is only one of me. That is good. If there were two of me, that would be even better for clubs.”

i must say this guy is the most arrogant manager around. yet he delivers.. would love to see him replace our beloved fergie soon. anyway was it just me or those words are very clear that he wanted to join manchester united. and he praises scholesy.. haha.. we welcome u jose. anyway good luck with real madrid. article from
