Ballack: Mourinho criticises the so-called stars

Ballack revealed to German magazine Rund: “He criticises the so-called stars, and he doesn’t mince his words.

“He is fair and direct and has a pretty cool manner.

“Mourinho wants to win – you can see it. He protects his players. He is very open and very relaxed when he’s dealing with us. It isn’t put on and he doesn’t lose any authority by doing it.”
