The two managers have both managed the Blues, Inter Milan and now Los Blancos throughout their illustrious careers, and it’s unsurprising that the duo are familiar with one another’s work.

“Real Madrid are the third of Jose Mourinho’s old teams Rafa has coached. We tidy up his messes”, she quipped.
We wonder if the Portuguese manager is planning his witty comeback…
