Mourinho: Madrid players vain

Former Real Madrid Coach Jose Mourinho says many of the players during his time at the Bernabeu lined up in front of the mirror before matches.

The Portuguese, 51, also criticised the attitude of some modern footballers in wanting to be rich before they have even proven themselves.

“In the past players wanted to make money with the progression of their careers and eventually become rich at the end of their journey,” Mourinho said to Esquire.

“But now the people around them want them to be rich before they have even signed their first contract or before they have even played a match in the Premier League or Champions League.

“A lot of times at Real Madrid the players would line up in front of the mirror while the referee was waiting for them in the tunnel.”
