#9 Mourinho vs. Pellegrini

Prev Next


Mourinho and Manuel Pellegrini are regular foes on the touchline, first in La Liga with Real Madrid and Malaga and now in the Premier League with Chelsea and Manchester City. Mourinho recently claimed Manchester City outspent his own club in the transfer market and made a £23 million profit in January—they didn't—while City boss Pellegrini shouldn't need a calculator to work it out. Mourinho stated that City got away without a punishment for Yaya Toure's alleged kick on Ricky van Wolfswinkel—saying the FA "failed to defend football." For his part, the City boss retorted he didn't want to talk about Mourinho—then did, obviously.
