'Mourinho Is A Disaster'

Chelsea have been warned that bringing Jose Mourinho back to the club could be an unmitigated “disaster.”

Granted, the warning comes from Barcelona’s vice-president, and so should be taken with more than a pinch of salt.

But it does suggest that The Special One will leave scorched earth behind him and not a bed of roses when he exits Spanish football.

Considering the fact that Mourinho helped Real Madrid derail the Barca juggernaut, the Catalan club’s vice-president, Carles Vilarrubi, is surely wincing on some sour grapes.

But perhaps there is a grain of truth to his assertion that Mou brought “nothing positive” to Spanish football, and that he could be a negative influence in English football too.

"It is not good for English football," Vilarrubi said of Mou’s reported deal to re-join Chelsea, according to The Telegraph.

"Chelsea maybe think they had a good time from him in the past. But you will see the real Mourinho now.

"If he behaves like he did in Spain it will only be an unhappy relationship. A disaster. And at his age he is not going to change."

The logical response to Vilarrubi’s outburst regarding Mourinho is that the heated relationship between Barca and Real colours his perception of The Special One.

But he insists that it is Mourinho’s personality, and not his ability to briefly craft a winning Real Madrid, that has given him the hump.

"My position is not because he was the coach of a rival, but because of who he is and what he did," Vilarrubi said.

"His three years in Spain he only creates disagreements, arguments, there is nothing positive he brings.

"You can learn good things about life from watching people in football, or the circus, or the opera. There was nothing he brought that was good. There was no positive balance. I cannot see anything good about him. Not one thing. In sporting terms, maybe I am not the person to ask. But in cultural terms, he was a disaster.

"Apart from his aggression to the coach of Barca, the ambience he creates everywhere he goes, the relations with the players, with the press are absolutely terrible. I am happy that he is leaving. And so is everyone in Spanish football."
