Chelsea's Ancelotti more special in Italy than me, claims Inter Milan's Mourinho

Posted By: Staff

Milan, Dec 19(ANI): Inter Milan manager Jose Mourinho has said that his Chelsea counterpart Carlo Ancelotti is more special in Italy than he is.

The former Chelsea manager Mourinho said that most Italians would want former AC Milan manager Ancelotti to win when both of them go head-to-head during the Inter Milan-Chelsea clash in the Champions League.

"I've seen how much Ancelotti is appreciated in Italy, how in Italy they celebrate the victories of Ancelotti's Chelsea," The Sun quoted Mourinho, as saying.

Mourinho also highlighted that he is not treated as the 'Special One' in his own country either.

"In Portugal, which isn't huge, they should be proud of those few who reach excellence. But there are incomprehensible attitudes. It stupefies me. I find it hard to take it in," he said. (ANI)
