Mourinho takes questions from a bunch of really small italian reporters …and looks really happy for a change.
One of the kids took a particular interest in Mourinho’s status as one of the highest earning trainers in football, asking if he gets paid even when Inter don’t win.
Mourinho replied: “Usually the Coaches earn more when they have been sacked than when they are working, but I prefer to work than earn more.”
Another kid said he rarely sees Mourinho having fun and asked him if he does actually have the capacity to laugh.
“Hopefully I laugh when I sleep and I have no need to do so after,” Mourinho joked.
On his playing ability he said, “I wasn’t a phenomenon but I haven’t done bad as a trainer.”
One kid called Jordan plays in goal and asked Mourinho if he had any advice.
Mourinho replied: “The goalkeeper is alone on the pitch. He has a different jersey. He occupies a different position and has to be good, not only technically, but also psychologically strong and determined.”
“Yes, I say swear words with my players and with my assistants when I am angry.I don’t see myself training a women’s team, because it’s already difficult training men and it would be even more so with women,”
So that’s what Mourinho looks like when he is out of the spotlight..
