Bayern Munich president slams Mourinho

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been criticised by Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness ahead of the meeting between the two club's in the European Super Cup in Prague on Friday evening.

The encounter represents the renewal of the rivalry between Mourinho and former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola, who has taken charge of Bayern Munich following their all-conquering 2012-13 season.

Mourinho and Guardiola endured a tempestuous relationship during their respective times in Madrid and Barcelona, and much of the Super Cup build-up has centred on the pair going head-to-head once again.

During a press conference on Thursday ahead of the match, Mourinho took exception to a line of questioning from a reporter who questioned his record against Guardiola.

Mourinho has won only three times in 15 meetings with Guardiola - something the Portuguese refuted - and Hoeness was far from pleased with the way in which the Chelsea manager handled questions about the Bayern boss.

"I do think that the match [against Chelsea] is about prestige," Hoeness told Kicker.

"Especially since Mourinho has, again, made some unqualified comments ahead of the match. So, I think our coach will be fired up about this game."

Chelsea and Bayern meet for the first time since the 2012 Champions League final, which the Blues won so dramatically courtesy of a penalty shootout at the Allianz Arena.
