The Mind Games Continue!
He's barely shaken off the criticism received as a result of his comments about Arsene Wenger but it seems Mourinho is not resting on his laurels.
When asked about tonight's mouthwatering clash between Manchester City and Barcelona, Mourinho responded with these comments-
'Of course by history Barcelona is the favourite, but this Barcelona, this season, is showing that it is not the same in previous years.
'Of course, they have [Lionel] Messi - he is special - and they have more than him. But I think this is the worst Barcelona of many, many years.'
More mind games from the master or just a petty dig at his old rivals? In a recent interview with the Sunday Telegraph, Barcelona's midfield maestro Xavi, who is a vocal critic of Mourinho, wasted no time in admitting that he'd rather play City than Chelsea.
He said, when asked about THAT night in the Nou Camp, 'Chelsea won the Champions League but by my reckoning, without playing good football... They did it legitimately, but I think they were very lucky.'
Is Mourinho just responding in kin to Xavi or trying to unsettle a team that are just looking a little more fragile among Europe's elite?
