"22 irrelevant players. One irrelevant ball. An irrelevant referee. A lot of irrelevant people in the stands. An irrelevant manager. 90 minutes, and possibly more, of utterly irrelevant football. And Jose Mourinho."
Here we have Mou at a press conference on Friday, looking grumpy as ever. He did not speak to the press at all that day, leading journalists to assume he was choosing to be silent ahead of the Clasico. In truth, he was physically unable to talk, as he’d lost his voice from yelling into a mirror all night à la Liz Lemon.
