Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has branded rival Premier League managers “STUPID”.
Mourinho has hit back at those who he believes are overly-focused on their ‘philosophy’ and possession football.
“There is no new generation of managers,” Mourinho told the Sunday Times. “What it is, is people who got some idea, some philosophy, and want to create something like, ‘we build very well from the back, we have a very good ball possession, we don’t play counter-attack’.
“But if you don’t play counter-attack then it’s because you are stupid. Counter-attack is a fantastic item of football, an ammunition that you have, and when you find your opponent unbalanced you have a fantastic moment to score a goal.
“So I think people are creating illusions and it has influenced public opinion. But football will never change. Football is to win.”
