Following Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez's wife publically insulting Mourinho, the Chelsea boss has responded.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has responded in extraordinary fashion to comments made by Rafa Benitez’s wife.

The Spaniard’s wife had previously come out with comments that her husband is “always tidying up after Mourinho.”

But those comments have provoked a stinging response from Mourinho, claiming that Benitez “destroyed his Inter Milan team”, and the Chelsea manager even went on to poke fun at his weight.

Benitez was sacked just six months into his spell at Inter having taken over  Mourinho’s treble-winning team.

"The lady is a bit confused, with all respect," Mourinho said after Chelsea beat Barcelona 4-2 on penalties after drawing 2-2 with Barcelona in the International Champions Cup.

"I'm not laughing. Because her husband went to Chelsea to replace Roberto Di Matteo and he went to Real Madrid and replaced Carlo Ancelotti.

"The only club where her husband replaces me was at Inter Milan, where in six months he destroyed the best team in Europe at the time.

"And for her also to think about me and to speak about me, I think the lady needs to occupy her time and if she takes care of her husband's diet she will have less time to speak about me."
