Jose Mourinho Still Uses Whatsapp Group With Inter Players
Jose Mourinho might not have a great relationship with some of his former players but according to Samuel Eto'o the former Inter manager still messages in a Whatsapp group with former Nerazzurri players.
The 'Special One' has a reputation for falling out with everyone on his way out of clubs but that wasn't the case when he was Inter boss, leaving after winning the Treble with the Italian side.
Eto'o, who was instrumental in that side, revealed his former boss still messages in their Whatsapp group with the rest of the players, saying, "This man [Mourinho] created a family at Inter Milan.
"We have a WhatsApp group which we all talk on every day, celebrating birthdays and reliving memories and Jose is always updating us on the scores around Europe, he is obsessed!" How wonderful is the thought of Jose messaging 'You seen the Dortmund score, lads?'
Mourinho doesn't need to worry too much about keeping his players updated with scores as he and Eto'o were together at the launch of LiveScore's partnership with La Liga.
Speaking at the event the former Real Madrid manager said, "It is important football continues to innovate and embrace technologies that can develop the game for clubs and leagues but, and I say this after my first summer as a fan, that the emotion remains in football.
"...I have spent many hours watching football these past six months and I must confess I have become addicted to LiveScore."
It's no wonder then that he keeps updating his former players with the scores from around the world.
The former United boss hasn't been in work in management since being sacked by the Red Devils last December, amidst rumours of falling out with several of the players.
His biggest falling out happened when managing at the Bernabeu though as big characters Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and even Cristiano Ronaldo are thought to have fallen out with him.
Former Barca forward Eto'o was moved from an out-and-out striker into a wide forward by Mourinho, with the Cameroonian doing much of the leg work for Diego Milito,
The 38-year-old striker retired just last week after finishing his career playing in Qatar.
