Ahead of the Community Shield between the Red Devils and the Foxes this afternoon at the Wembley Stadium, the loquacious Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has lauched a barb at Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri stating he would never swap careers with him.
Several British newspapers this morning quoted Mourinho throwing the jibe at the Ranieri; “I have my career, he has his career.”
“Ask him if he would change his career with mine. I would not change mine with his but it (winning the Premier League) was an unbelievable achievement.”
FA Cup holders Manchester United and Premier League champions Leicester are due to meet in the Community Shield at the Wembley stadium by 4pm, the traditional curtain-raiser to the English season.
Mourinho, 53, and Ranieri, 64, previously clashed during their time in Italy, when the former was in charge of Inter Milan and the latter coached Juventus and Roma.
Ranieri’s 5,000-1 triumph with Leicester last season gave him the first top-flight title of his career. He has also won the Coppa Italia with Fiorentina and the Copa del Rey with Valencia. Mourinho, sacked by Chelsea last season, has won eight league titles in four different countries and is a two-time Champions League winner.
The duo of Ranieri and Mourinho has also coached Chelsea before with Ranieri giving way for Mourinho when Roman Abrahamovich bought Chelsea.
