Former Manchester United manager and one time Real Madrid coach José Mourinho spoke on his arrival at Madrid in an interview to the ’11’ channel of Portuguese television.
According to the former United boss, despite his end in the club, he remembers it as the best experience of his career.
“Days at Real Madrid was my best experience because of what I learned as a coach, as a man, for the lessons that I took in my career and in my life. It is the best memory of my career, it was fantastic.” He said.
“What they asked me at Real Madrid was with my nature. They told me that we had the best team in the world on the other side, that they were crushing us and we had to reverse the situation.”
“We had to prevent Barça from crushing us and that’s why the Copa del Rey final in Mestalla is the most important. From there, nothing was the same.
”We won the League, the Super Cup, but nothing was like the Copa del Rey final. Unfortunately, I did not succeed to win the three Champions League semifinals.”
Ronaldo’ll still play a game and score a goal when he is 50.
When asked about his relationship with fellow Portuguese while at the club, he predicted Cristiano Ronaldo will still be scoring goals at 50 if he decides to play on,
“What Cristiano does does not surprise me,” Mourinho told Portuguese TV channel 11. “At 34, he is a top player, who plays in a top team and has top ambitions.
“It does not surprise me because he is a case study in genetic terms, and mentality as well.
“He is a phenomenon, someone who only thinks about winning and doing it more and more and better. That is why I am not surprised at all what he does.
“When he is 50 years old he will be at home and FIFA will invite him to a game of legends. He will play the game and score a goal. I am sure it will be like that.”
