Could say that José Mourinho does not have him a special affection to the FC Barcelona, in spite of having worked in the past in the Barcelona club. The Portuguese does not be used to to speak well of the team culé and his animadversión to him is usual.

It was in Bein Sports, where is working, the place in which it explained the solid that it is this Barcelona. For the luso, the group barcelonista is not brilliant, but yes is a big team that is solider that in previous campaigns.

"It is a praise, is not a criticism. They do not play phenomenal, but are solid, probably more than in other seasons. They know how defend and are compact. Surely his game was not so beautiful as to the that the people is accustomed, but are winning parties. And when you go to the eliminatory of the Champions League and confront you to big teams in the chambers, in semifinals... It is a big way to face it", aimed.

Mourinho also had time to speak of the defence of the Barça. The ex of the Real Madrid flattered to the couple of head offices formed by Hammered and Lenglet and showed his predilection by Ter Stegen. "The Barça has to Hammered and Lenglet, a fantastic couple of head offices by in front of Ter Stegen, that is better season to season", explained.

The Portuguese, besides, valued very positively to Ivan Rakitic and put him by the clouds by his partidazo in the Bernabéu and by his path in the Barcelona. "It is one of the players more infravalorados of the world. It is a fantastic player in all the levels. In his defensive tasks in the right side to compensate to Messi, in possession is fantastic, plays easy, is effective... It wanted to say it before finish, because usually always speak of the big names", commented the luso.

The luso kidded with what is missing him to Rakitic to be a crack

Mourinho is an enamoured of the game of the ex sevillista and left it very clear with his comments. But the ex of the United also kidded on what is missing him to the Balkan midfield player to be considered a crack. "It needs to improve in his Instagram and his social networks because in this moment is not very important. It is not very good in this, is very good in the field", kidded the Portuguese.
