Speaking to Italian daily La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ranieri said: “Do I like anything about
Mourinho? Yes, the fact that all his players speak highly of him means that he has forged a great rapport with them.
“But I don't like the way he stirs up controversy from time to time. The friction between us has nothing to do with the fact he replaced me at Chelsea.
“I knew I was on borrowed time, but I still believe I had a superb season because I took the Blues to fourth place without spending any money.
“The simple fact is that I have nothing in common with Jose. He may have won a lot and I haven't, but I have been in football for a long time and I keep doing better so I still think I have done a good job.”
