Smear campaign launched against ex-Chelsea boss Mourinho

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has become a victim of a smear campaign, says Britain's leading publicist Max Clifford.

Clifford is aware of at least two people intent on selling stories about former Chelsea manager Mourinho's personal life and he is not impressed.

The lurid claims have not been made public and Clifford told the Daily Express: "Obviously someone has got it in for him, and your guess as to who it is - and why they are doing it - is as good as mine. Considering this is Jose Mourinho and considering his profile, it is surprising that nothing has been alleged during the past few years."

Nuno Bias, Mourinho's representative, said last night: "We know nothing about this story and I've nothing to say on this."
