What’s that saying? You don’t mess with the best! Well, Rafa Benitez’s wife, Montse Benitez should have known this, or at least Rafa should have warned her before she decided to take on Jose Mourinho!
Plenty of managers from Arsene Wenger to Manuel Pellegrini to Roberto Mancini; everyone have tried to take on Mourinho in their career and all of them have succumbed to a painful and hilarious defeat! Maybe Lady Benitez didn’t know this, that’s why she took a dig on Mourinho:
“Real Madrid are the third of Jose Mourinho’s old teams Rafa has coached. We tidy up his messes! If you think about it, of course, you end up crossing paths. There are only a few world-class clubs out there.”
Yeah, right! Benitez tidying up Mourinho’s messes? That’s gotta be the most stupid thing I have heard in a while and mind you, I have heard Arsene Wenger’s and Manuel Pellegrini’s comments on Mourinho. Still, this is some stupid statement!
So Mourinho being Mourinho, when Portuguese was quizzed about the comments, here’s what he replied:
“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.”

Whoa! That must have hurt! But that’s what you get when you mess up with the master. Although, that last line by Mourinho is hilarious! Maybe Rafa should warn her before she takes on the Portuguese again. Good luck managing Madrid Rafa!
