Former Barcelona Captain Xavier “Xavi” Hernández Creus openly questioned the values that Jose Mourinho maintains.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach is known for his controversial coaching philosophy of “winning at all cost” that many sees as disregarding the established rules of football.
Xavi got a clear look at the way the Portuguese worked when he managed Real Madrid, and says that winning at all costs was not the way in football.
“He always wanted to win at any price and that shows in the way he goes about things,” Xavi said.
“I respect that philosophy, but winning at any cost means you can’t stay true to a playing style. For me, the ends don’t always justify the means.”
“I have a lot of respect for him, he has achieved great things, but I see football in a different way to Mourinho.”
Jose Mourinho was recently sacked following a record slump for Chelsea, but is already linked with big clubs such as Manchester United and Real Madrid.
