As they prepare for the away clash to Inter Milan, Juventus boss Claudio Ranieri has spoken out on his counterpart Jose Mourinho.

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.”
