Jose Mourinho’s silence during the Real Madrid vs Barcelona press conference angers the Spanish press. A boycott of the meeting follows...El Clasico is just around the corner and Jose Mourinho is at it again! The outspoken coach, whose statements often help papers sell even better, made an interesting decision on Friday ahead of Real Madrid vs Barcelona aka El Clasico.
It was press conference time but the “Special One” did something rather “extraordinary”. Simply, he didn’t open his mouth once! That’s the unpredictable Jose Mourinho for you, but what was he actually trying to do? Resisting the Spanish media for the sake of Real Madrid’s image ahead of Saturday’s showdown or resisting the Spanish media only to make some pre-match controversies?
Either way, the “Special One” didn’t give up on his decision to remain silent throughout the press conference whereas his attitude got local journalists fuming. Eventually, the Spanish media walked out of the room in protest – leaving foreign reporters with more time on their hands to question the man that did all the talking: Real Madrid’s assistant coach Karanka.
“Every time Mourinho speaks, his words are blown out of proportion,” Karanka explained as Mourinho didn’t resign to the suggestive whispers of Spanish journalists at the press conference.
How much truth exists in Karanka’s claims? And how much impact will Jose Mourinho's silence have on Saturday's Real Madrid vs Barcelona match - El Clasico?
