Man Utd boss Mourinho sparks Aston Villa row inside Portuguese football

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has sparked a row inside the Portuguese football.

Former Benfica star Aleksandr Mostovoi had a pop at the ex-Porto coach when discussing Mourinho's success in management.

"I would like to see Mourinho at Aston Villa with a budget of €30 million, the exception being Leicester with (Claudio) Ranieri," barked Mostovoi.

The comments quickly drew a response from Ricardinho, the Portuguese futsal star.

"I would like to say that I would like to see Mourinho in a team with €30 million to see what he would win," said Ricardinho, before referring to the example of Pep Guardiola, of Manchester City.

"Let's see if other supposed coaches of great clubs can do it in such teams, as is the case of Guardiola: Barcelona, Bayern and City."
