Mourinho refuses to put boot in on Benitez after Real Madrid’s El Clasico humiliation

first_img1 Jose Mourinho Jose Mourinho insists he takes no pleasure in seeing Rafael Benitez struggle at Real Madrid.The pair have a famously fractious relationship and have regularly exchanged barbs over the years.Benitez has succeeded Mourinho at three different clubs and his wife recently joked that her husband tidies up the Portuguese’s messes.That prompted Mourinho to make a jibe about the Spaniard’s weight as relations between them hit a new low.But the Chelsea boss refused to put the boot in on Benitez when asked on Monday what he made of Real’s humiliating defeat to Barcelona, which has left his old rival on the brink.“I don’t enjoy other people losing matches. I enjoy my club winning matches,” Mourinho said.“I don’t smile with defeats from other teams, I smile with my victories.“That’s why I don’t smile a lot in the last four, five months.“In this moment I see so many people speaking especially about the clubs in trouble, it’s amazing the lack of respect.“If I speak about Real Madrid, I speak when they are winning, not when they are losing. From me, words about the Clasico. Nothing.”last_img read more
