Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho laughed off claims by ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek that he accused one of his Real Madrid players of being a “rat” during his time in Spain.
In an extract from his book, Dudek says that Mourinho levelled the accusation at Esteban Granero when his tactical plans were leaked to the media.
However, the Portuguese has shrugged off those suggestions by his former keeper, insisting that he has a healthy relationship with Granero.
“Don’t make me laugh. Dudek really said that?,” he told the Daily Star. “Granero is a great professional and a lifelong friend of mine.
“What do you say the book is about? About training goalkeepers? And what is he out to do, transmit his experience to the children that are dreaming of being goalkeepers?”
