Benítez answers Chelsea's José Mourinho

The Spanish manager wants to focus "on football".

"This lady is confused, and he should spend more time taking care of his husband's diet". That is what the Portuguese coach said about Rafa Benítez's wife, who previously said Benítez likes to "tidy up Mourinho's messes".

Benítez spoke in press conference a day ahead of Real Madrid's friendly against Milan, but he did not want to speak about this matter. "I'm the coach of Real Madrid, I like football, I understand football and that's why I only talk about football. We're here to prepare the match against Milan and a successful pre-season stage so far. I want to talk about the present and the future, which I hope sees me as the coach of this team for many years", said Benítez.

Benítez was probably smart by calming things down after Mourinho's furious quote. Real Madrid need to focus on the upcoming season which will start in less than a month, because that will be the best possible answer for Benítez.
