Mourinho wishes Benitez luck

Published Add your comment

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has wished old foe Rafael Benitez best wishes as he prepares to succeed Roberto Di Matteo in the Stamford Bridge hot-seat.

The Spaniard had a tempestuous relationship with Mourinho during his days as Liverpool manager, masterminding two Champions League semi-final wins over the Blues, including in 2005 when Luis Garcia took the Merseyside outfit to Istanbul with what Mourinho described as a "ghost" goal.

But, following his Real Madrid's 1-1 draw at Manchester City, Mourinho put his differences with Benitez to one side, and said: "I like my old clubs to win. I always wish the managers of my former clubs well so I always wish good luck to managers of my former clubs. I wish good luck to Benitez."
