Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez have had a longstanding sizzling rivalry.

And now it appears that Rafa's wife, Montserrat Seara, has weighed in with a cheeky jibe of her own.

She made reference to the fact that three times in Benitez's career, at Inter Milan, Chelsea and now Real Madrid, her husband took jobs that Mourinho previously held. 

She told La Region, as per Goal.com"We tidy up his (Mourinho's) messes. If you think about it, of course you end up crossing paths. There are only a few world-class clubs out there."

Clearly just a bit of banter from Mrs. Rafa, but it's good to see the rivalry flame between the Benitez and Mourinho clans still burns. 

Mourinho shot back at Benitez and his wife after Chelsea faced Barcelona in the International Champions Cup. 

As per the Mirror the rarely quiet Mourinho thinks she should be more concerned about Benitez's diet.

The lady is a bit confused, with all respect. 

I'm not laughing. Because her husband went to Chelsea to replace Roberto Di Matteo and he went to Real Madrid and replaced Carlo Ancelotti. 

The only club where her husband replaces me was at Inter Milan, where in six months he destroyed the best team in Europe at the time. 

And for her also to think about me and to speak about me, I think the lady needs to occupy her time and if she takes care of her husband's diet she will have less time to speak about me.
