Argentina boss Maradona big fan of Real Madrid coach Mourinho

Argentina coach Diego Maradona admits he's a big fan of Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho.

Indeed, Maradona says he could seek out the Special One's advice during the World Cup.

Maradona told La Nacion: "I like Mourinho a lot. On top of that, the way he received me, we spent hours talking about football, attacking and defensive tactics.

"He seemed to me a guy to take to your bedside table and ask him each time you need something.

"I've got his phone number, I might call him."

One thing Maradona did stress was that he would not go as far as using the defensive strategy Mourinho used at Inter Milan in the Champions League as he led them to the treble.

"No, not that. But it worked for him, right? He won the Champions League."?
