Ex-Italian international Thiago Motta has labelled his former boss Jose Mourinho a winner who is less concerned about entertainment.

The Portuguese has been criticised for Manchester United’s style but Motta has revealed Mourinho only thinks about winning games.

How the result comes about isn’t much of a problem for the former Madrid coach is only happy when things go the way of his team.

Motta lifted the UEFA Champions League in 2010 while playing for Mourinho’s ultra-defensive Inter Milan side before joining Paris Saint-German.

The 36-year-old who’s now the coach of PGS U-19 side spoke to Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He’s a winner. In his head, there’s only one goal: winning. Entertaining doesn’t interest him.

“Mourinho has two sides: one happy when he wins, one p*ssed off when he loses. His mood changes depending on the result.

“If the team plays well, but loses, he can’t find anything positive.

“But if he wins playing badly, he’s overjoyed.

“Mourinho doesn’t look for beauty, he looks for an enemy. If he doesn’t have one, he’ll create one.

“With Inter, we had an 11-point lead in the league, we lost a game and then drew one. The Monday, he held a 15 minute press conference where he attacked everyone: Galliani, Milan, Roma, the referees, Juve. He needed to refresh the atmosphere.”
