  1. Mourinho has a "double personality" Former Barcelona president Joan Gaspart has accused Jose Mourinho of having a double personality following the Supercopa controversy. The Real Madrid coach stirred up the media with his outrageous actions in the post-match fracas that followed the 3-2 Supercopa loss to Barcelona. Mourinho reached from behind to hit Barcelona assistant coach Tito Vilanova in his eye while both sides clashed on the sidelines. Vilanova retaliated by shoving the Mourinho, who was strolling away, but the Portuegese coach only turned around to grin at him. The self-styled 'Special One' has been criticised by many Barcelona-affiliated personalities and former Barcelona president Gaspart is the latest to join them. Gaspart admits to being bewildered by the bizzare behaviour exhibited by Mourinho, whom he personally know. Speaking to COM Radio, Gaspart commented: "Mourinho has a double personality, "He transforms himself when it comes to football, but this is not his normal way of being. Even Madrid seem happy with it, but I really do not understand this. "He is not the Mourinho that I have known." Speaking of the coach's attack on Vilanova, Gaspart said: "This is not normal. I can never remember a coach attacking another."
  2. Barca's criticism of Mourinho continues Barcelona vice-president Carles Vilarrubi has added to criticism of Jose Mourinho following the controversial end to the second leg of the Spanish Supercopa. Another fantastic footballing spectacle between arguably the best two sides in Europe was again overshadowed by the antics of Mourinho, who appeared to put a finger in the eye of Barca assistant Tito Vilanova during a melee in the closing stages. Vilanova responded by striking the Portuguese on the side of the head as the match - which saw Barca emerge 3-2 winners on the night to claim the Supercopa 5-4 on aggregate - finished in ugly scenes at the Nou Camp. Yet with reports from Spain suggesting the incident involving Mourinho and Vilanova was not mentioned in the referee's report, it is likely that both will face no further sanction from Spanish football's governing body. Barca central defender Gerard Pique said following the game that Mourinho, who will this season serve a touchline ban in Champions League fixtures after comments made about Barca during similarly ill-tempered clashes between the two arch rivals last term, was "destroying Spanish football" and Vilarrubi has also hit out at the former Inter Milan boss. "Expanding on Pique's comments, I must say that Mourinho is a blight on Spanish football," said Vilarrubi, the vice-president of the institutional area at Barca, was quoted as saying on radio station RAC1. "I'm convinced that Madrid as an institution cannot support their coach in some cases like yesterday [Wednesday], so we'll see what happens in the coming hours." It remains to be seen what, if any, punishment Mourinho will receive for his actions, but Vilarrubi wants the Portuguese to be brought to task. "I don't know exactly who, but someone has to act on this matter and I hope that they do it." Mourinho, meanwhile, continued his verbal assault on Barca following the match, labelling the European champions "a small team". He was particularly unhappy that the ball-boys appeared to disappear after half-time with the home side 2-1 up on the night and 4-3 ahead on aggregate. "Real Madrid gave a spectacular performance from the first to the last minute," he said. "We came here to play. What I'm about to say is not a criticism, I'm just stating a fact: there were no ball-boys in the second half, which is something typical of small teams when experiencing difficulties. "I'm not going to say we're happy because we didn't win the Spanish Super Cup, that would be hypocritical of me. "But we intended to play like men and not fall on the ground at the slightest touch.'' The sub-plot came at the end of a wonderful game which saw Barca twice take the lead through Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema replying. But, with extra-time looming, Barca won it when Messi volleyed home Adriano's right-wing cross. Madrid's frustration then spilled over with Marcelo sent off for a crude tackle on debutant Cesc Fabregas, on from the bench, which sparked a bust-up that saw Mourinho's clash with Vilanova and red cards for substituted players David Villa and Mesut Ozil. Pique was clear in his opinion on where the blame lay, saying: "I do not talk about the brawl. But it's a shame, it is not the first time and it's always the same. "Someone has to take action on the matter. Mourinho is destroying Spanish football. There is talk about the Catalans, but the problem is with Madrid. "I think it's going too far. It cannot always end well. In the end this will end very badly." Barca midfielder Xavi added: "Madrid's image was shameful. The pictures speak for themselves. We believe in footballing justice and justice was done today [Wednesday]." Mourinho's opposite number Pep Guardiola did not wade into the issue but had a word of caution for those involved in the tense atmosphere on the pitch. "We must be careful, because one day we will cause harm, not on the field but off, and we're all a little responsible for this," he said.
  3. Mourinho slams Barca as "small club" After a tempestuous Supercopa defeat, Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has continued his verbal assault on Barcelona, calling them "a small team". Another fantastic footballing spectacle between arguably the best two sides in Europe was again overshadowed by the antics of Mourinho, who thrust a finger in the eye of Barca assistant Tito Vilanova in a melee towards the end of the game. Mourinho, who will this season serve a touchline ban in Champions League fixtures after comments made about Barca last season, could now face further action yet instead chose to question the Catalans' sporting morals post-game. The Portuguese was particularly unhappy that the ball-boys appeared to disappear after half-time with the home side 2-1 up on the night and 4-3 ahead on aggregate. He said: "Real Madrid gave a spectacular performance from the first to the last minute. "We came here to play. What I'm about to say is not a criticism, I'm just stating a fact: there were no ball-boys in the second half, which is something typical of small teams when experiencing difficulties. "I'm not going to say we're happy because we didn't win the Spanish Super Cup, that would be hypocritical of me. "But we intended to play like men and not fall on the ground at the slightest touch."

But, with extra-time looming, Barca won it when Messi volleyed home Adriano's right-wing cross. Madrid's frustration then spilled over with Marcelo sent-off for a crude tackle on debutant Cesc Fabregas, on from the bench, which sparked a bust-up which saw Mourinho's clash with Vilanova and red cards for substituted players David Villa and Mesut Ozil. Despite the controversy, Mourinho feels his team are getting closer to Barca, who pipped Madrid to the La Liga title last season and knocked them out of the Champions League at the last-four stage. He added: "We feel like we played two very good games in their entirety. This team is better than it was last year. "The longer you work with people, the better the conditions are to have a better year. "We played nine games this pre-season and proved to be better than we were last year in the last two. "I'm happy with the progress my men have made."
  4. Mourinho "destroying Spanish football" Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has accused Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho of "destroying Spanish football" after an ill-tempered end to the Supercopa final. Mourinho, as he was in both England and Italy, has quickly become a contentious figure in Spain and under his watch last season Real had four men sent off in five games against their rivals. Barcelona took the silverware last night as a Lionel Messi brace secured a late 3-2 victory but there was still time for another Real red card as a brutal challenge from Marcelo saw him dismissed in the closing moments. A huge melee unfolded involving players, substitutes and staff from both sides, with Mesut Ozil and David Villa both shown red despite having already been substituted. Mourinho, meanwhile, may come under scrutiny for his role in the fracas as he was pictured heading towards Barca coach Tito Vilanova and making contact with his face. Vilanova responded by pushing Mourinho, who walked away grinning. After the game Pique fumed at the Portuguese's actions. The defender said "I do not talk about the brawl. But it's a shame, it is not the first time and it's always the same. "Someone has to take action on the matter. Mourinho is destroying Spanish football. There is talk about the Catalans, but the problem is with Madrid. " "I think it's going too far. It cannot always end well. In the end this will end very badly." Mourinho's opposite number Pep Guardiola did not wade into the issue but had a word of caution for those involved in the tense atmosphere on the pitch. "The images speak for themselves," he said. "We must be careful, because one day we will cause harm, not on the field but off, and we're all a little responsible for this. "
