Catania director Pietro Lo Monaco revived his bitter row with Jose Mourinho. “He's a charlatan and tactically inept.”
The verbal fireworks date back to Mou's first season in Serie A at Inter and sparked back to life after Barcelona's 2-0 Champions League win at Real Madrid.
“On Wednesday I saw a team, Barcelona, that was clearly superior both in technique and tactics to Real Madrid,” declared Catania general manager Lo Monaco.
“They dominated and taught Real a football lesson. Madrid struggled, despite all the champions in its squad.
“Mourinho is a great motivator, but tactically inept. He's a charlatan.”
UEFA have opened an investigation into Mou's post-match comments, in which he suggested referees always favour Barcelona "because of UNICEF."
