Internazionale coach Jose Mourinho believes his Juventus counterpart Claudio Ranieri is too old to ever develop a winning mentality.

The Portuguese coach´s comments were given in response to claims made by Ranieri on Sunday, who took a sly dig at the man who replaced him at Chelsea by claiming he needed to win to be assured of himself.

Mourinho told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Ranieri? He´s right in what he says: I am very demanding of myself and I need to win to be secure about things. That´s why I´ve won so many trophies in my career. He, on the other hand, has the mentality of someone who doesn´t need to win and at nearly 70 years old he has won a Supercoppa and another small cup. He´s too old to change his mindset."
