Sergio Ramos Has A Dig At Jose Mourinho Ahead Of Super Cup?

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos seemingly took a swipe at his former manager Jose Mourinho ahead of his team's clash against Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup.

Mourinho, now at United, will come up against his former club in the Super Cup in Skopje, Macedonia, on Tuesday evening.

In the pre-game press conference, Ramos was asked what the differences between his current and former managers are.

"My view is that when a team has a coach it changes, every coach is different because of his system, tactics, and personality," the Spain international said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"One coach is not necessarily better than another. They are just different.

"Zizou was very good at understanding our dressing room as a former player. Maybe that gives him an advantage.

"One can look at the picture and draw different conclusions. I believe both are great coaches. We are lucky to be living this historical moment with Zizou."

The defender was also asked if Mourinho had a great influence in moulding his playing career as it was the Portuguese who effectively converted Ramos from a right back into a centre back, but the player was seemingly dismissive of the tactician in his response.

"I don't think that changed my career at all," he added.

"Mourinho was just another coach I worked with in my football career and I have always learnt from others, from when I was a youngster at Sevilla.

"So I am very, very grateful but I don't think Mourinho has changed my life in football at all."

Ramos agrees that he prefers Zizou instead of Mou but he doesn't want to say that, but at the same time that is what he is saying. ...and he is wrong by not accepting that Mou changed his life on football talent
