Former Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez made a thinly veiled dig at Jose Mourinho, chiding him for his apparent win-at-all-costs attitude. Asked about Mourinho’s attitude during his time at Real Madrid, Benitez claimed sportsmanship should not be sacrificed just for the sake of winning. “Everyone is how th-ey are but I try to do things with respect and professionalism. That is how I was educated.”

‘All eyes on mourinho’

Lisbon: Premier League fans should expect new Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho to attract a lot of attention next season, Tottenham Hotspur coach Andre Villas-Boas said. "It won't be possible to take your eyes away from Mourinho," he said. “One of his characteristics, and I don't say it in a negative way, is to deviate attentions, positive and negative, in such a way that the team is only worried about winning.”
