Let Mordor be my witness, Mourinho is a coward!

Love him or hate him, José Mourinho gets the job done wherever he goes. FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and current club Real Madrid can all attest that the Portuguese coach’s unorthodox managing style has brought success.

But one fanatical Real Madrid fan has had enough, and he just happens to be a half-Danish Hollywood star, who sometimes goes by the name of Aragorn, son of Arathorn, the unofficial leader of the Fellowship of the Ring.

The critic is, of course, Danish-American actor Viggo Mortensen, and in a recent interview with Spanish sports magazine Marca, he shocked Spain, and no doubt most of The Shire, with an attack on Mourinho, calling him a coward.

“What kind of a man goes around sticking their fingers in people eyes?” he asked, referring to the incident when Mourinho poked Barcelona’s then assistant coach Tito Vilanova in the eye.

“There is a reason why he poked Vilanova and not Simone [Athlético Madrid’s coach]. Had he done that, Simone would have kicked his ass.”

Mortensen went on to say that Mourinho lacked respect and that he didn’t like his presence at the club.

“He can’t even apologise like a real gentleman, and it doesn’t soothe me that Real Madrid hasn’t had this type of person [presumably he means eye gouger, a bit like an orc perhaps] at the club before,” Mortensen raged.

Mortensen, who is currently in Spain promoting his forthcoming Argentine film ‘Everyone has a Plan’, went on to snub Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo by calling Lionel Messi the world’s best player.
