Jose Mourinho has joined the rest of the world in congratulating Claudio Ranieri and Leicester City on their memorable Premier League triumph, Goal.com reports.
The former Chelsea boss, who led the Blues to the trophy last season before getting fired in December after a dismal run of form that ended in a loss to eventual champions Leicester, has praised Ranieri, his predecessor at Stamford Bridge, and the entire Foxes’ squad on the historic feat.
“I want to congratulate everyone connected to Leicester; players, staff, owners and fans,” Mou told CAA Sports.
“I lost my title to Claudio Ranieri and it is with incredible emotion that I live this magic moment in his career.”
Mourinho had earlier scoffed at Ranieri’s career, claiming the man he replaced at Chelsea in 2004 was “considered a loser” at the club, while also deriding the Italian’s methods during their rivalry in Serie A.
The former Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid head coach has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League ahead of next season, with Old Trafford a likely destination should Manchester United decide to part ways with current manager Louis Van Gaal in the summer.
