Milan Coach Massimiliano Allegri launched a stinging attack on Jose Mourinho. “He sets a bad example and insulted everybody in Italy.”
Mou had quite a few run-ins with Allegri when he was still in charge of Cagliari, having beaten the then-Inter boss to the Golden Bench award as Serie A Coach of the Year.
“He was here for two years and insulted everybody in Italy,” snapped Allegri in the Gazzetta dello Sport.
Mourinho is back in the headlines after UEFA opened an investigation for improper conduct.
The Real Madrid boss is accused of ordering Xabi and Sergio Ramos to get themselves sent off against Ajax, giving them a clean disciplinary record for the knock-out phase of the Champions League.
“Would I do that? No. I wouldn't do what he did to us at San Siro either. With Andrea Pirlo on the ground with his head cracked open, my players put the ball out.
“Real gave it back, but on the throw-in there was already a full-back pressing us. He sets a bad example.
“You can do some things with nobody noticing if you play down the local park, but not when the world is watching on television.”
