Jose Mourinho: Won't be missed by Vilarrubi

It was announced on Monday night that Mourinho would be parting company with Madrid at the end of the current Primera Division season, bringing to an end a turbulent three-year spell in charge of the club.

During that time, Mourinho has had several high-profile run-ins with Madrid's arch rivals Barca, including poking Tito Vilanova in the eye during a Spanish Supercopa match and claiming UEFA favoured the Catalan club following an ill-tempered Champions League semi-final.

And Vilarrubi, vice-president of Barca's Institutional Area, is glad to see the back of him.

He told Catalunya Radio: "Now I can say it, Mourinho has been a scourge.

"Seeing him leave is a positive for Spanish football because he had created a negative atmosphere."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
