Default Cryuff not a Chelsea Fan

Johan Cruyff has continued his ongoing war of words with Jose Mourinho by insisting the Chelsea boss has still to learn how to win the respect of his peers.

The two became embroiled in a very public spat when Cruyff criticised Chelsea for their brand of football, insisting they were sacrificing entertainment for results at any cost.

Mourinho hit back by claiming Cruyff was living in the past and sarcastically challenged the Dutchman to teach him how to become a better manager having already won every major European honour on offer.

Speaking in La Vanguardia, Cruyff has responded and insists he would happily teach Mourinho not only how to play attractive football, but more importantly, in his view, how to win respect for his achievements.

"Between spectacular, controlled football, which I defend and will always defend, and results-based football there is a world of difference," stated the former Barca coach.

"An inadequate team has to try and defend as it can, but a great team, with great players, always has to give something more.

"What's more, it has to for the good of football.

"For that reason I don't sympathise with coaches who put results above everything else, who only think about themselves and not about football itself.

"I am happy to hear that Mourinho would like me to teach him a few of the things that I stand for.

"I could teach him how to play very well, just like at Ajax in the 70s or Barcelona in the 90s.

"I would happily teach him not just about winning and playing well, but also about winning respect from people, and that is more important than the titles you win.

"At his age he has had enough time to learn about winning and losing. Winning the respect of people is a different story."
I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around a city, keeping its speed over 50, and if its speed changed, it would explode! I think it was called, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."
