The Argentina national team has always been one of the giant teams in football history. From managers to players, season by season, they have produced many generations of talents who have conquered football. Players like Alfredo Di Stefano, Gabriel Batistuta, Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi, and many more have made football fans fall in love with them. Well, recently in an interview, Paulo Dybala revealed that one of the legendary football managers, Jose Mourinho always talks about Argentine players.
“Jose Mourinho always says wonderful things to me about Di Maria and Messi. He loves him (Messi)!”
He also said that after we won the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Mourinho was the first person he talked to, as he had five missed calls on his phone. He was pleased because he loves the Argentines.
Well, Dybala is not wrong. Mourinho has always had a special bond with Di Maria and Lionel Messi. Though he didn’t manage Messi once in his coaching career, he was one of the big threats for him as he coached the opposition teams. He has always praised and admired Messi’s game. Not just Mourinho, but several football managers around the world have admired him.
On the other hand, the bond between Mourinho and Dybala is one of the best in recent times. Both are a part of the Roma club and the squad’s crucial members.
