Chelsea boss Mourinho hits back at Barcelona's Iniesta over 'Spanish damage' claim

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has happily hit back at Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta's claims he "damaged Spanish football". In total Mourinho won three trophies in Spain with Barca claiming seven in the same time period but the 50-year-old still believes Iniesta's comment was the result of sour grapes.

"I damaged Spanish football by being the manager that broke Barcelona dominance," he said.

"They were dominant and dominant and dominant and it looked like it was a dominance without an end.

"Real Madrid won the Cup final against Barcelona, Real Madrid win the Super Cup against Barcelona, Real Madrid won in Barcelona and Real Madrid won the championship which is the historical championship of 100 points and 121 goals."
