Brazilian defender Dani Alves expressed that the newspapers should leave Mourinho alone, because they already pay too much attention to anything he says. Alves stated that there is no extra motivation to play against him.
Mourinho loves to give press conferences and the media will always obtain headlines from those, and Alves is aware of this. But he does not want the people to feel like Barcelona players are constantly thinking about beating him. "The press thinks that we are talking about him all day long, but it's not true".
"He is a good coach leading a good team. That's it. He has won just as many titles as me and many players at Barcelona, so it's not that special" Alves concluded.
