Report: Mourinho Gives PSG His Notes on Barca

MOST COMMENTED

French publication L’Equipe reports that Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has given his friend and Paris St. Germain counterpart Carlo Ancelotti his notes on how to beat Barcelona, following the Portuguese’s recent success against the Catalan giant. PSG faces Barca in the first leg of its UEFA Champions League quarterfinal series in Paris on Tuesday.

Mourinho recorded back-to-back victories against Barca in the Copa del Rey semifinal and in La Liga less than a month ago, and has reportedly given Ancelotti an edited package of the two victories while telling the Italian tactician of the weaknesses he has detected in Barca’s game. As coach of Real Madrid, Mourinho has won four, drawn five, and lost four against Barcelona in 13 games in all competitions.

Despite the L’Equipe report, Ancelotti suggested that copying Real would not be much help to PSG when he spoke to the press on Thursday. "We're not Real Madrid, we have different characteristics," he said. "I still haven't thought of the strategy I'm going to use against Barcelona, because I've been focused on [today’s Ligue 1] match with Montpellier for the last 15 days."
