Jose Mourinho conveniently forgot about Cristiano Ronaldo when talking of the football stars capable of creating the game’s greatest moments.
The Chelsea boss was asked about the amazing strike by Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam in the game at Stamford Bridge over the weekend, yet and not mention his former player at Real Madrid among his list of greats.
“It was a fantastic goal and one which any of the world’s best players would like to have scored,” Mourinho told reporters.
“If you ask Pele, [Diego] Maradona or [Lionel] Messi, or any of those top players, they would like to have done that.
“Not all of them have scored a goal like that in their careers so in that way Adam’s goal is magnificent.”
