Barca star Dani Alves admits Jose Mourinho will be missed in La Liga
Barcelona defender Dani Alves has already bid farewell to Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho. The Brazilian right-back has enjoyed a fiery relationship with Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese’s time at Inter Milan.
Dani Alves claims everyone is Spain will miss the self-proclaimed “Special One”, when Jose Mourinho leaves Real Madrid this summer. Rife rumors suggest Jose Mourinho is edging towards a stunning return to Chelsea.
Real Madrid have already approached Paris Saint-Germain to sign in their manager Carlo Ancelotti, but the mega rich French outfit has rejected the thought of losing their Italian boss.
As rumors about Jose Mourinho’s exit spread around, a mixed set of feelings can be seen around Spain. On one hand there are supporters, who will mourn losing one of the greatest managers Real Madrid could have. On the other hand there are supporters who celebrate the exit of the under-achieving manager, whose three-year long era containing rows with competitors, match officials, UEFA and his own staff and players will final come to an end.
In spite of all the drama between Real Madrid and Barcelona, Dani Alves admits Jose Mourinho will be missed in La Liga.
“We will miss Mourinho,” Dani Alves said. “La Liga will lose something without him as he is a great competitor. I have not fought with him. We are just two winners. He is one of the most ambitious coaches in the competition, and he adds spice. You [the journalists] will lose more than us [the players].”
Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw against Espanyol allowed Barcelona to steal the La Liga crown from Real Madrid with three games left in the season. Dani Alves claims that in spite of the huge lead over Real Madrid it hasn’t been easy reacquiring the title from Jose Mourinho’s side.
“I am very pleased, winning this title has been a long process,” Dani Alves said. “But we have done it, now we have to celebrate it with the importance it deserves. If it were so easy to win La Liga, we would not have lost it last season.”
