Mourinho makes bold claim about Messi
The Special One was relieved of his duties by Roma last month. In his first public interview since then, he named Messi as the player he would like to coach.
"A player I'd have liked to coach? For example, I never got to train Lionel Messi, but then nobody can train Messi. It is absurd to think you could coach him because he was born with everything and already knows everything," Mourinho told Ohm.
"He might teach you some things... All you could say is that you had the honour of having him in your squad," he added.
