Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has mocked Rafa Benitez over his appointment at Chelsea.

Mourinho – now coach at Real Madrid – could not resist a swipe at his former rival.

When he was informed that Benitez had landed the Chelsea job, Mourinho laughed and said: “So Materazzi assistant?”

That was a reference to retired Italian defender Marco Materazzi, who worked under Benitez at Inter Milan.

He was quoted as saying: “Benitez thought that he knew everything, but instead he was afraid of his own shadow.”
