Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp made the comments after copping criticism from the Special One.
Mourinho ranted: "You speak with Jamie Redknapp and he tells you everything about it.
"It was about winning - you have your pundits and Jamie Redknapp, who is a brilliant football brain.
"They can explain to you everything."
But the retired playmaker laughed off the criticism and hit back.
"I gave him a little bit of criticism… and obviously he didn't take it very well, " Redknapp joked. "That is a proper diva moment, isn't it?"
