Benitez has followed Mourinho’s coaching career path to Chelsea, Inter Milan and now Real Madrid, leaving Montserrat Seara to joke that her man was always there to clean up the Portuguese bosses “messes”.
“Real Madrid are the third of Jose Mourinho’s old teams Rafa has coached,” Seara told La Region, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“We tidy up his messes! If you think about it, of course you end up crossing paths. There are only a few world-class clubs out there.”
Mourinho has hit back at Seara’s comments, saying she should spend more time looking after her husband’s “diet” rather than thinking about him.
“The lady is a bit confused, with all respect. I’m not laughing, because her husband went to Chelsea to replace Roberto Di Matteo and he went to Real Madrid and replaced Carlo Ancelotti,” Mourinho is quoted as saying by Daily Express.
“The only club where her husband replaces me was at Inter Milan, where in six months he destroyed the best team in Europe at the time.
“And for her also to think about me and to speak about me, I think the lady needs to occupy her time and if she takes care of her husband’s diet she will have less time to speak about me.”
Like always, it seems Mourinho has had the last laugh with this one.
We eagerly await Benitez’s reply…
