"Relationships in football between managers, I don't understand how and why," Mourinho told Yahoo!-Eurosport. "Especially how it is possible and when is it possible, because I see other managers 10 minutes before the game.
"I shake hands, I say hello. I see them sometimes after the game for a quick drink. I meet them once a season in some preseason meeting or in some UEFA conference but basically we don't have a relationship."
"Do I respect them? Yes, almost all of them, the big majority of them obviously I respect," he added. "But relation? Unless you had something in the past which connects you the relation is very short."
