Mourinho: 'I'd Have Been Sacked Too!'

22 November 2012 12:35
After every man (and his dog) passed comment on the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo yesterday - Jose Mourinho puts it all into perspective.

Jose Mourinho feels that if his team had suffered a UEFA Champions League exit similar to Chelsea's . it would have cost him his job at Real Madrid.  Mourinho's Real Madrid join Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last 16 following the 1-1 draw with City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

It is the very minimum demanded by the hard-to-please media pack who follow the Spanish giants and with whom Mourinho has such a spiky relationship.

Jose Mourinho: "I admire the fact that clubs support their manager.

"Manchester City is out of Champions League. But Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are very good teams and we knew a big team would be out.

"It is good that it was City because Roberto Mancini can work without any kind of problem I believe.

"If it was Real Madrid, the press wouldn't let me return to Madrid.

"I like my old clubs to win.

"I always wish the managers of my former clubs well so I always wish good look to managers of my former clubs.

"I wish good luck to Benitez."
