Ranieri tried it on, Jose slapped him down.

He said nothing special about Ronaldo, despite what the English press tried to insinuate.

With the press, I'm not sure they were always fair to him in Italy. I don't particularly sympathise with the journalists, anyway.

Didn't he say Ronaldo was uneducated and lacking intelligence?

I also remember he had a right go about Fergie because Fergie had words with Graham Poll at half-time during a Carling Cup tie at Stamford Bridge. Graham Poll said he was saying all-sorts .

No doubt about it though, he is a winner. But also an ego-maniac who puts his alter-ego ahead of the club he managing.

i agree. it's just press hype.

whenever i listen to mourinho in tv interviews he's pretty much always entertaining and informative.

ferguson suggests experience will be a vital 'characteristic' of any manager in contention to takeover. but tbf that's not necessarily the case. his own experience should tell him that it takes an exceptional manager to succeed at Old Trafford, and that therefore it's that rather than experience that will be the key ingredient. and tbf, he put no age restriction on experience anyway.

No, it was a poor translation job.

Education - Educação is a good example of what are known in linguistics as false friends - words that are very similar in two languages but have different meanings. Educação in Portuguese essentially means "manners". It's nothing at all to do with school/academic education. Essentially, all Mourinho did was suggest that Ronaldo was being a bit rude, but the English press managed to turn it into some kind of insult about Ronaldo's background.
