Catania sports director Pietro Lo Monaco has continued his rant against Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

The verbal fireworks date back to Mou's first season in Serie A at Inter and sparked back to life after Barcelona's 2-0 Champions League win at Real Madrid.

"On Wednesday I saw a team, Barcelona, that was clearly superior both in technique and tactics to Real Madrid," declared Catania general manager Lo Monaco.

"They dominated and taught Real a football lesson. Madrid struggled, despite all the champions in its squad.

"Mourinho is a great motivator, but tactically inept. He's a charlatan."
