Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho took over at the Santiago Bernabeu from Manuel Pellegrini in 2010, and despite an ambivalent three-year tenure with the Galacticos, a leaked team news before a vital Clasico match in April 2011 revealed the magnitude of acrimony the Portuguese tactician harboured with his players, after he called them “traitors, treacherous and sons of bitches”.

Despite leading Madrid to the La Liga title in the 2011-2012 season life in Spain grew increasing difficult for Jose with clashes with key players such Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo widely reported, and he left in the summer of 2013 to Stanford Bridge after a trophyless season.

Just a year after Mourinho arrived at the Spanish capital club, paranoia set in, and he began to believe that there were people conspiring against him, he added that the only goon he trusted was Granero, after the story was divulged in a book titled ‘The Special One’ : The Dark Side Of Jose Mourinho by Diego Torres, translated by Pete Jenson.

“You’re traitors. I asked you not to speak with anyone about the team selection but you’ve betrayed me,” 53-year-old Mourinho pointed accusing fingers at his players at the end of the match.

“It shows you’re not on my side. You’re sons of bitches. The only friend I have in this dressing room is Granero… and I’m not even sure that can trust him any more.

“You’ve left me all on my own. You’re the most treacherous squad I’ve had in my life. Nothing more than sons of bitches.”
