Chelsea boss Mourinho: Don't compare me with Clough

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has ducked comparisons with the great Brian Clough.

Mourinho dismissed Neil Warnock's claims comparing him to the late great Clough.

The Crystal Palace boss believes the 'Special One' is cut from the same cloth as the former Nottingham Forest manager.

Admitting he was flattered, Mourinho said: "I think there is no comparison. Mr Clough is a legend in English football. What he did, especially with Nottingham Forest, stays forever. He's a real legend.

"I think it's a big loss for English football that he went so early. If Neil makes that comment, obviously it makes me proud, but I think the legacy of Mr Clough has no comparison here."
