Jose Mourinho breaks the world record for mentions of the word ‘match’ in a post-match interview
The Special One will have to hurry back to his adoptive homeland shortly. It seems all this galavanting in Italy and Spain is causing his English vocabulary to take a big hit.
For instance, consider his press conference after last night’s Copa Del Rey victory over Barcelona. The Real Madrid coach is on a mission to ensure that he doesn’t say more than five words without one of the words being ‘match’.
We have a laugh now, but it’s probably some Derren Brown mind games he is working on ahead of the Champions League semi-final.
