Mourinho famously squeezed Valdano out of Real while in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu.
"Jose Mourinho always saw things that were not there," said Valdano in El Hormiguero. "I was not someone who blindly followed after Mourinho. I always wanted to talk to him, but he ignored me systematically.
He also drew a comparison between Mourinho and his 'eternal rival' Pep Guardiola.
"Guardiola is someone who has passion for football, Mourinho has only passion for the end result."
