Brescia Technical Collaborator Luigi Maifredi has branded Jose Mourinho as inferior to most Italian coaches.
Mourinho has had a long and successful career winning the Champions League with Porto, as well as the Treble with Inter in 2010.
However, more recently the trophies have dried up with Mourinho’s last success coming in 2017 in the Europa League with Manchester United.
“Mourinho is a crafty man and that’s it,” Maifredi told TMW Radio.
“Technically he is inferior to almost all Italian coaches. He’s just good at communicating. He doesn’t give anything to the team.
“He was lucky at Porto, and then he was good at promoting himself. I would never take him as a coach even if they paid me.”
Specifically comparing Mourinho to Stefano Pioli, Maifredi was complimentary of the AC Milancoach who he believes isn’t one to moan to media outlets when decisions don’t go the way of his Rossoneri side.
“Pioli never complains, despite the wrongs,” Maifredi continued.
“When you do a certain type of job, you enter a world with rules. And the referee is one of those you can’t attack, because he’s always right.
“Going up against them afterwards is harmful to everyone. And as a result, you give an alibi to players who didn’t play well.”
