Barcelona’s Honorary President Johan Cruyff, in an interview with Catalan daily Sport, has revealed that although he admits Inter Milan’s “[Jose]Mourinho is a great coach,” he doesn’t like “the way in which he trains.”

Although the Portuguese manager, who was once an assistant to Sir Bobby Robson and Louis van Gaal at the club, has gone on to become a massively successful coach, Cruyff believes Mourinho’s attitude is not one that is suited for the Catalan giants.

Despite currently needing to turnaround a 3-1 deficit against the former Chelsea boss’ Inter Milan in their Champions League semi-final clash tonight, Cruyff insists he would prefer a manager that conducts himself better, saying, “I’m a big fan of technicians as [Frank] Rijkaard or Barcelona’s Pep Guardiola, who are gentlemen. I think this sport is more than just winning.”
