Jose Mourinho's spell with Real Madrid is not often held in the highest stead.
The Special One arrived in the Spanish capital after a hugely successful stint with Inter Milan where he won the treble in 2010.
It was thought that Mourinho would be the one to guide Los Blancos to 'La Decima' due to his prolific record in European competition, however, it just wasn't meant to be as he was defeated in the semi-finals by Barcelona in 2011.
A lot of the time at the Bernabeu, there was talk of the boss engaging in some disputes with his players, most notably Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas.
His decision to drop the latter sparked a lot of criticism.
But, it turns out he angered yet another member of Real's first-team; Karim Benzema.
The French forward - who was recently the subject of criticism from Gary Lineker - was certainly nowhere near his best for much of Mourinho's reign and the boss directed a few insults his way at a press conference in 2011.
MOURINHO GOES FOR BENZEMA
"If you don't have a dog to go hunting but only have a cat, you have to take your cat. You'll catch less, but you'll catch something all the same," he said.
Ouch, a bit brutal from Mourinho.
He's known for doing that kind of thing, but, he probably didn't expect Benzema to react in the manner that he did.
BENZEMA PUTS JOSE IN HIS PLACE
“We always had a good relationship, but after that, there were expressions and statements that were not necessarily well intended,” the striker told Canal+.
“I had the impression that it made him laugh. Even if he’s someone I respect, after a while, I started to lose it.
“I told him what I had to say, it took an hour. 'I'm a football player, you're my coach, I respect you, respect me as a player'. From that moment on, there was no cat, no dog or whatever...
“I'm shy but if you make fun of me, I'll be direct. And when you speak your mind, it's true that things are always better.”
It's about time someone stood up to Mourinho.
Maybe Luke Shaw could learn a thing or two from the Real Madrid man, with the Manchester United man's career going down the drain due to the manager's reluctance to give him any opportunities in the first-team.
