Mourinho ribs Portuguese Ronaldo with 'real Ronaldo Brazilian' jibe

London, Aug 6 (ANI): New Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo have been involved in another verbal fight before Wednesday's friendly between the two clubs, with Mourinho declaring that 'the real Ronaldo' was the former Brazil striker, with whom he worked during his period as a translator and assistant coach at Barcelona between 1996 and 1997.

According to The Guardian, the Portuguese Ronaldo responded by saying that he preferred to remember the good things from coaches and does not spit on the plate from which he ate or speak about people who say bad things about him, adding that Real Madrid was facing Chelsea and not their coach in a warm-up game.

Mourinho added further intrigue to the meeting with his former employers by stating that Madrid was politics and not about football or sport, the report said.

Madrid have won all their warm-up games under their new coach, Carlo Ancelotti, and take on Chelsea in Miami with Ronaldo having played in a newer more advanced striker role on the pitch, the report added. (ANI)
