Jose Mourinho lambasted Claudio Ranieri many times, but is now giving him advice on how Inter can beat Juventus.
The two tacticians regularly exchanged barbed comments over the years, including the Special One referring to his colleague as ‘a loser.'
“I trust in Ranieri's experience and also have a great deal of faith in the Inter players who, as everyone knows, I still care about,” the Real Madrid boss told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
It is reported Mourinho rang up Ranieri to discuss how they could beat the Bianconeri in tonight's Derby d'Italia.
“I have fantastic memories of all the Inter-Juve games I was involved in. For everything that unites me to San Siro and the Interisti I just ask that the fans bring back the same atmosphere they had at the time.
“It was an atmosphere that allowed San Siro to almost win games by itself. I ask the fans to give me another of those nights where we played not with 11 men, but with 60,000.”
