It's no secret that Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho don't get along, and that feud apparently extends to spouses as well. Earlier on Tuesday, Benitez's wife, Montserrat Seara, lobbed what appeared to be a light-hearted bomb in Jose's direction:
Real Madrid are the third of Jose Mourinho's old teams Rafa has coached. We tidy up his messes!

This is like that moment in a horror film where the protagonists decide to check out the basement rather than running the [fun] away. It might have seemed like a good idea at the time but it was SO OBVIOUSLY A BAD IDEA WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! Anyway, Mourinho was asked about the quotes in the aftermath of Chelsea's pre-season draw/win against Barcelona, and seized upon them as though they were an errant Steven Gerrard backpass:
BOMBAZO MOURINHO EN WASHINGTON: "La mujer de Benítez debería estar más preocupada de la dieta de su esposo antes que hablar de mi"— moises.llorens (@moillorens) July 29, 2015
Mourinho on Benitez's wife's allegation that he left Rafa a mess in Madrid: "She should be worrying about her husband's diet." #RMCF #CFC— amadí thiam (@amadoit) July 29, 2015
Ok, that's brutal. And for the follow-up?
Mourinho, cont'd: "The only team [Rafa] took over after me was Inter & he destroyed what was the best team in Europe in six months." #CFC— amadí thiam (@amadoit) July 29, 2015
That one probably hurts a lot more, especially because it's true. Poor Benitez is going to have to change his name and start wearing a disguise after being crushed like this.
