Calcio Fever: Mourinho Is Still Mourinho!

Jose Mourinho is known to be a charismatic and outspoken manager. He has had a number of public feuds in his Chelsea spell. Who can forget his infamous feuds with Arsene Wenger and Rafa Benitez?

What about when Mourinho claimed that he saw referee Anders Frisk having a chat with Frank Rijkaard at half-time and accused the Swedish referee of selling the match?

The self-proclaimed "Special One" has been a household name and a media superstar ever since he went to Chelsea, after winning the UEFA Champions League with Porto.

With his move to Italy to coach Italian champions Inter, Mourinho has not changed a bit. He still possesses the same arrogance, leading him to feud with pretty much everyone around him.

Trouble has followed Mourinho throughout his career, and it's seems no different at Milano. He has already had several publicized feuds with Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri where the Portuguese tactician said Ranieri was "old and fruitless".

Mourinho also started a bitter relationship with Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti after the former Chelsea manager publicly stated that Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani contacted him in hope to replace Ancelotti as Rossoneri manager.

Most recently, Mourinho had a big spat with Catania director Pietro Lo Monaco. Lo Monaco had reacted angrily to Mourinho's words before the Catania-Inter match where the he said beating Catania is "ordinary".

Mourinho's words outraged Lo Monaco who described Mourinho as a "big-mouth" who deserves a smack in the mouth. Mourinho came out again with another humorous yet disrespectful press conference where he said he has heard of the Monaco Grand Prix, but never heard of Lo Monaco.

Jose Mourinho has continued to have his way in Serie A. The former Porto boss stated recently that, had he stayed at Porto, he would have had the easiest job in the world; a job where he would come after God.

Mourinho's arrogant words have again infuriated Lo Monaco.

"When I hear certain phrases of Mourinho such as the one when he said that only he came after God, I remain appalled.”

But whether people like him or not, Mourinho has been creating a compelling atmosphere wherever he has gone. With him taking the reigns at Calcio champions Inter, Mourinho will give Serie A a well-deserved push in the world media.
