Torino coach Giampiero Ventura admits he's a big fan of Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho.

Ventura smiled when asked about Mourinho's 50th birthday.

"I wish him all the best and will even sing him Happy Birthday. He seems arrogant and presumptuous, but was completely the opposite with me. He'd phone me after a game with Inter and said he'd vote for me in the Coach of the Year Awards because we played good football."
