Jose Mourinho was a failure as a footballer: Johan Cruyff
Madrid: Former Barcelona star Johan Cruyff has branded Real Madrid trainer Jose Mourinho a failure as a footballer.
The Dutchman laughed off the Portuguese`s self-granted title of `the only one`, and even had harsh words for the Blaugrana`s president Sandro Rosell.
"He had nothing to show for himself as a footballer but now he can do something," Cruyff was quoted as saying by AS.
"Yes, he is the only one, the only mad enough to say a thing like that. He`s so mad he`s in a straitjacket."
Cruyff went on to discuss the transfer policies of his former team, and stated that new trainer Tito Vilanova has a lot to prove.
"The best philosophy is to create players, not buy them. We [Cruyff and Rosell] don`t share the same philosophy. I don`t believe he understands the notion that Barca is more than a club."
"He [Vilanova] has to prove his worth when the going gets tough. We`ll have to wait and see before we jump to conclusions about him. Working behind Guardiola is not the same as being in charge, it`s completely different," he concluded.
