Mourinho: Grant Is A Loser
« on: May 24, 2008, 11:00:41 PM »
Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has labelled his recently sacked successor Avram Grant a ‘loser’ following the club’s first trophyless season in four years…
Stampa Articolo Invia ad un amico Contatta la redazione  galleria zoom    The Special One parted company with the Blues back in September after irreconcilable differences between he and club owner Roman Abramovich culminated in a rocky start to the season.

Grant took over on a caretaker basis but was handed the job permanently in December, much to the surprise of many observers who were predicting a big-name replacement.

But following Chelsea’s failure to collect a trophy, despite pushing Manchester United right to the wire both in the Premier League and the Champions League, Grant has received his marching orders – to the surprise of few, it must be said.

And Mourinho has stuck the boot in, claiming the Israeli was destined to fail due to lack of a winning mentality.

“In my philosophy it was a very bad one because in football ‘almost’ means defeat,” he said.
 
“Chelsea almost won the Carling Cup, almost won the Champions League, and almost won the Premier League. Almost is nothing.
“After two titles per season for the last three years there were zero titles this season.

“In my philosophy that means a really bad season.

“Maybe in the philosophy of a loser this was a great season, which I respect.”

soon ah go b ah lean mean bulling machine.

DA?
Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

So how far did Mourinho take Chelsea in the Champions League?

 Yep, Jose ain't make up Grant record, it is there for all to see. He just calling it as Grant write it. Av was the one talking about how he changed Chelski's football style and how cope with the injuries, patting he self on his back. All that said, Jose is the one who instilled the winning mentality in those perenial losers like Terry, Lampard, Cole, Drogba- the so call heart/spine of the team.  So Jose right to crow, cause Grant ain't add nothing to the team Jose left.

  You're wrong, Giggsy. Grant added Anelka. ;D

 In any event, based on these and other comments that Jose made during the course of this season since his departure, I truly think he harbours a substantial amount of resentment and bitterness towards the Abramogrant fraternity and whomever its pledges might be. John Terry? ???
That he is taking the first opportunity to throw mud on Grant's casket rather than to lay a flower might suggest that things may have been very, very ugly between them leading up to Jose's departure. should he have taken the high road? Who knows? Every cancer calls for its own course of treatment.

  It tickles me how critics like zeppo and others are quick to compare "how far" abramogrant took Chelsea into the CL to Jose's record. Result of the "win now" mentality that is so prevalent among american(ized) fans and society. Jose coached Porto along a progressive path and did the same with Chelsea. Of course, the assets and circumstances of each club will dictate the curve and expectations of progression, but it's progression all the same. Jose was going to get Chelsea there sooner or later. But, as I have pointed out before, good thing for manu/fergie fans that manu didn't place that "win now" expectation on fergie.

mourinho is no diplomat ...he calls it like it is ...love him or hate him ..he has produced the goods. He is only saying aloud what is usually said behind closed doors ...you win or you are out ! is big money talking here ...dis eh no PR crap bout yuh give it yuh all and the spirit of the tournament etc... dem ting is for de papers ...for man who pumping millions into a venture ..you want results !!!
Grant did not get them ...so hasta las vista baby ...if dat too  harsh for him den he should try looking for ah wuk wid the peace keeping forces in Haiti , where you remain for life with little result  :beermug:
I agree with roman ..football should be pleasing to watch ..dat Chelsea game isnt! He wants to change dat ! good for him he can afford to say ...2nd is not good enough ..Ciao !

          This is all sour Grapes,nobody lives in a perfect world,no two people is the same,no two teams are the same,you don't have to win anything to be a good team,what going on here or at this level of Football is all about business because when you lose it's money involved,Maurinho is holding his dismissal from Chelsea against Grant so he will never have anything good to say about him.Maurinho can call it like it is because he is in a position to call it like it is,he has results to prove that but it's not a good thing when Coaches bashing other Coaches. All the top English teams in the EPL are very good teams they prove that by dominating the just concluded championships,they all can't be champions at the same time,somebody has to win.
