Koeman: “Mourinho most hated manager in Europe”


Ronald Koeman, ex-Barcelona and now current boss Feyenoord confesses he thinks Mourinho is the most hated manager in Europe despite also saying he’s been won over by the Portuguese’s sharp tactics and winning mentality. 

Despite the Chelsea boss’ antics infuriating many opponents, Koeman can see both sides to the argument. He said: “Many people in the game can’t stand ­Mourinho – [but] I am the ­opposite.

“Mourinho may not create the most beautiful style of football. But he does create winners. Nobody turns his players into winners more than he does.

“This man gets the maximum out of his teams.”

In addition to this, Koemon believes Chelsea, who fought bravely to knock PSG out of the Champions League, will reach the final of the competition.

“They did not beat PSG because they played better football, but because they had more winners on the pitch at Stamford Bridge,

“Was it a piece of magic ? No. Was it the result of a brilliant attack? No. It was the result of a bunch of players with a winning mentality thanks to their coach.

“He comes out with strong stuff. He did it before the PSG match in London. But he achieves what he ­promises.

“My God, I can only show huge respect then.”
