PRECIADO'S OUTBURST AGAINST

MOURINHO






-
This thing he said to a fellow La Liga club... a modest, humble club that earned hard the right to play in first division. A club that fights till the last minute in every game to save ourselves from relegation... and he goes and says that "we go around giving away games"? But where does this guy come from? It's absurd. And on top of this, that everybody's clapping at him and celebrating him? Well, I'm up to my NECK with him. This is why I'm saying all this.
And of course, I'd like to make it clear that I am not criticizing Real Madrid at all. I'm only criticizing the guy who said all this.

PRECIADO's PRESS CONFERENCE

I swear on everything sacred that I wasn't planning on making a public statement about this.
I thought it was something he said on the spur of the moment, you know. So imagine my surprise when I came home last night and turned on the radio... and not only Mr. Mourinho refused to rectify his comment, he actually added fuel to the fire, practically asking for my head on a plate.
If this had happened in England, Mr. Mourinho would be behind bars for saying that.
Now, there are three ways of looking at this.
If it's a joke, I didn't like it one bit. I think it's a really bad joke.
Another option could be that it was just a way to pick at the manager of Barcelona, to make him lose his patience/ get a reaction out of him. If he thinks this is what it was, then he's delusional, because at Barcelona they're not going to answer his provocations.
Or, he might have actually meant it. If this is the case, then he is a slimeball, and a very bad fellow manager. Now, I think this is the case. I didn't want to make an official statement about this because I don't want people to think I'm going to prepare an hostile environment for Real Madrid, and nothing could be further from the truth. He was the one who made the environment hostile, and it will be hostile.
Because we're not idiots. We're not bigshots, we're humble, but we're still first division sportsmen.
Secondly, we know how to win and thirdly, we know how to lose. And if no one at Real Madrid taught Mr. Mourinho what respect is, then I'm going to tell him right now. We deserve the exact same respect that he earned with all the cups he won and the titles he won, with being always at the 'top'.
For sure this man has a very strange memory. He only remembers what he wants to remember. I don't know what he was talking about when he said couldn't make this part out last year. I remember a game that ended 0-0, with the two teams being on the same level, in which a goal wasn't disallowed only because the referee had already whistled. But I do remember us leading at the Bernabeu 0-1, with Van Der Vaart's action that enabled Real Madrid to tie and subsequently beat us. No one in this club opened their mouth or said anything.
In the end, if those in Madrid find solace in fueling the hate, then let them. If they like to justify on the first page their manager being sent off the pitch, let them. Viva Santander.
I always shake hands with everybody. What I won't do, however, is stand there like an idiot for the rest of my life. I kept my mouth shut for three months, and I swear I didn't have nothing against him, because I kinda like the guy, I mean, pardon, I used to like the guy. I don't like him anymore.
Because, shit, we're not made of stone, are we.  I repeat. I am a professional, and if he doesn't know me...and he doesn't know a lot of managers, because he's from another galaxy... in my carreer, too, there have been successes and victories, and most importantly behind me there are a lot of friends and co-workers, I've known how to lose, I've known how to win. Mr Mourinho, these days, almost always wins. I don't know if he's a good winner though. Personally, I don't think so. But sooner or later he's going to lose, when someone is going up and up, he's bound to. I'll be waiting.
Now, if normally we play at a 100%, then this time we're gonna be playing at 300%. Let's see if they can win against us. If they do win, then congratulations. But we're still going to play at full power.
There's nothing more to say, nothing more to say. We're talking about two completely different concepts of football, two completely different styles yet both are lethal.
We all know Real Madrid is a really dangerous team to play against, you have to play extremely well against them, you have to keep constant vigilance, they have a stellar cast of players, they have everything on their side to win against us here and in any other stadium in the world, but that said, I think that as a club, it's easier for us not to lose against Real Madrid than it is against Barça.
I'm not saying this guy has something against me especially. What happens is that he fabricates this whole machinery in his head and things are going great for him so he keeps on fueling the fire. That doesn't mean there can be in this machinery of this the clear lack of respect he's showing to everyone else.
With what he did with this club, with all the players of this club, shows a grave lack of respect, in my opinion, because what he's saying is that we're "giving away victories". Who the fuck does he think he is to say something like that? What is he on about? It's ugly enough if the press says it. But if it's a fellow *manager*? I don't like it. I don't like it at all. 
Interviewer: Would you tell Mr. Mourinho this to his face?
Preciado: If I have the chance to, of course I will.
Interviewer: If it were up to you, would you have let Mourinho sit on a private stand during the next two games, thus making it easier for him to follow the games?
Preciado: I would put him next to the ultras. But of course, it's not up to me, so...
(jumps to next answer)
I don't know, I don't know. But seriously, I'm trying to justify him here... I'm seriously trying to see what everybody's reaction is to his so-called "outburst". The same guy that last week in Milan walked up to the fans with his hand outstretched. Someone who does all these strange things... either he's a helpless egotist, or I just don't understand him.
This thing he said to a fellow La Liga club... a modest, humble club that earned hard the right to play in first division. A club that fights till the last minute in every game to save ourselves from relegation... and he goes and says that "we go around giving away games"? But where does this guy come from? It's absurd. And on top of this, that everybody's clapping at him and celebrating him? Well, I'm up to my NECK with him. This is why I'm saying all this.
And of course, I'd like to make it clear that I am not criticizing Real Madrid at all. I'm only criticizing the guy who said all this.
Interviewer: You'd like your statement to...
Preciado: to travel all around the world. That's why I brushed my hear special today. (laughs) I'll probably be criticized for making this statement. Well then, trace back my carreer with a magnifying lense, then tell me when in the past have I ever been this heated up about something.
I can safely say I am a model of fair play. I haven't been sanctioned once in the past two years and a half. You can ask any of my collaborators, any of my colleagues in the first and second division what they think about me, as a fellow manager and as a rival. Then everybody can draw their own conclusions.

It's fairly easy to understand. Who wants can understand, and everyone else, well...
(jump to next answer)
They're very good. Real Madrid is very good. Obviously, obviously yeah, I think they're a tremendously strong club, but that said, but if someone make an analysis based purely on football performances, you'll see that so far, they've always played against weaker clubs. They still haven't played against any of the clubs that are higher in the ranking. And then they lost points in places like Levante, Mallorca... or San Sebastian de Ciripa. So I don't think they're unconquerable.
(jump to next answer which I couldn't understand because my house is full of people sorry)
Practically, yes. But I'm not going to say it.

The manager of Espanyol defends his colleague and says he would have said the same thing if it had been him.

RDC Espanyol manager Mauricio Pochettino defended today the statement recently made by Sporting manager Manolo Preciado. "If I were him, I'd have said the exact same thing" about José Mourinho. Preciado called him "canalla" and "bad colleague" after the Portoguese accused him of playing with 10 men against Barcelona.

I checked both marca.com and elmundodeportivo as sources, so no need to call me biased.
It's sad to see that only news regarding the two "bigger" clubs only ever make it on ontd_football.
PLEASE DO NOT TURN THIS INTO A WANK POST. THANK YOU.
