Mourinho names Messi among the game’s greats… but forgets all about Ronaldo

first_imgJose Mourinho forgot about Cristiano Ronaldo when talking about the ‘stars’ of football capable of creating the game’s greatest moments.  Upd. at 22:40 Sport EN 06/04/2015 CEST The Chelsea manager was asked about the goal scored against his side by Stoke City’s Charlie Adam, which was from inside his own half. center_img “It was a fantastic goal,” Mourinho conceded. “A goal which any of the world’s best players would like to score. If you talk with Pele, [Diego] Maradona or [Lionel] Messi, or any of those top players, they would like to score that goal. “And not all of them have [scored a goal like that] in their careers, so in that way [Adam’s goal] is magnificent.”  It adds another chapter to the Ronaldo-Mourinho story. That the Portuguese coach didn’t mention his former player on the list with Messi, Maradona and Pele could be deemed as an intentional dig.  The relationship between the two deteriorated significantly in Mourinho’s final months as Real Madrid boss.last_img
