Mourinho speaks out

Jose Mourinho, former Chelsea manager has lashed out at ousted manager Avram Grant's claims of a "Good season" by calling it a VERY BAD SEASON and can be a good season for a person with loser philosophy.
Mourinho was speaking before the actual sacking of the Israeli.

Mourinho, when asked if the season had been a good one as depicted by Grant, told The Observer: "That depends on your philosophy of leadership.

"In my philosophy it was a very bad one because in football 'almost' means defeat and Chelsea almost won the Carling Cup, almost won the Champions League and almost won the Premier League. Almost is nothing.

"After two titles per season for the last three years there were zero titles this season, which in my philosophy means a really bad season. Maybe in the philosophy of a loser this was a great season, which I respect."

Its interesting this comes from a manager who wasn't able to steer Chelsea to the Champions league final and agreed he was able to win titles for Chelsea but you cannot ignore the fact that Avram Grant had the task of rebuilding the team and that too after the season had started.
Sour Grapes anyone?
