Real Madrid star: Why I fell out with Mourinho

Real Madrid star: Why I fell out with Mourinhoā€¯

The ex-England worldwide scored 17 goals in 52 appearances for the Red Devils and he remains thoroughly grateful of the vote of confidence given to him by Sir Alex Ferguson after the then-United boss failed to sign striker Karim Benzema, who made a decision to move to Real Madrid instead.

A two-time Champions League victor with Porto and Inter, Mourinho moved to Real Madrid in 2010 to try to bring La Decime to the Santiago Bernabeu.

But the comments that did the damage for Benzema were the ones referring to the 29-year-old striker as a cat.

"Following that there were no further stories about cats, dogs or anything else".

"I thank Benzema because without him I would never have gone to Manchester United", Owen told Canal+.

"I thought those comments made him laugh and even though there was respect, I started to become irritated". "It felt that he though they were amusing and the truth is that if he was someone that I respected, then in that moment I lost my cool".

"I told him that there was something that we needed to talk about".

"I'm shy but if you make fun of me, I'll be straight".

"It's always better to speak your mind and I'm usually quiet but if I'm annoyed, I will say so".
