Jose Mourinho responded to comments made by Antonio Cassano, saying “some of us work in football, he just wants to enjoy himself”
There has been ongoing tension between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Cassano, which resurfaced this week when Cassano criticized Mourinho on BoboTV with Christian Vieri. Cassano continues to argue that Mourinho is only interested in creating a spectacle. He claims he does so with his press conferences and sideline behavior and does not truly care about football.
Mourinho blasts Cassano
After Roma secured a 1-0 win against Torino, which led to them moving up to third place in the Serie A table, Mourinho responded to Cassano’s criticisms.
“Everyone is free to have their preferences and make their criticism. but when talking about others, like Antonio does, it’s different,” said the Special One in a press conference.
“Some of us work in football, he just wants to enjoy himself. Cassano played for Roma, for Inter and for Real Madrid. In Madrid he is only remembered for his jacket. With Roma he won a Supercoppa without playing. At Inter he didn’t even manage the Lombardy Cup in a friendly.
“You know what I won with Inter, Real Madrid and Roma. He might have a problem with me, I do not have a problem with him.
“I will tell Cassano just one thing. Careful Antonio, for you are 40 years old and I am 60. at times Marko Livaja types turn up and then it gets tough.”
The “jacket” in Mourinho’s comments referred to a particular furry jacket that Cassano wore when he first signed with Real Madrid.
