Jose Mourinho acknowledged that during his tenure with the treble-winning side of 2009-10 he was a “d*ckhead” to his Inter team.
The Portuguese, who had been asked to elaborate on his comments, pointed to a 3-1 loss in January 2009, after which he lost his balance and would have to apologize to the squad.
He told: “Regarding the setback against Bergamo in particular, I was really angry with the team- I told them that they deserved the Scudetto of sh*t. I just realized later that I had upset them and apologised.”
“Relationships exist: you play, I coach. The willingness to embrace me as I am relies on empathy – it’s like a puzzle,” Mourinho said. “There were people at Inter waiting for someone like me to complete the puzzle. I’m never fake, I’m just original: it’s me and it’s me. I was a d*ckhead, too, but that was me.”
However, despite it all, he actually felt like the club was still like a big family. He even announced that he was still in touch to his former driver at Inter 10 years after he quit San Siro. That’s how close he is to Inter.
