Jose Mourinho has sensationally claimed that Real Madrid and Barcelona are the best two teams in the world. And any other team in the world, in his opinion, would end in third position in the Spanish League. The Portuguese has managed clubs in England, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, winning at least two trophies with each team.
“What I used to say is that every club in the world goes to the Spanish league would finish third,” Mourinho told ESPN.
“Man City goes there, Manchester United goes there, Chelsea goes there. Who else? They finish third because the two best teams in the world are in the same league, so of course to the others, it is a big difference.”
However, when he was asked who should be crowned the best player this year, the 49-year-old went for his star player, Christiano Ronaldo.
“For me, the best player of a season must be one that won,” he noted. “What [Ronaldo] did helped the team to win something big, and I do not think in the history of the Ballon D’Or, one players own it without winning a big thing.”
“Without winning the Champions League, without winning the Spanish League, how can Messi be the Ballon d’Or?”
