Mourinho: I wouldn't swap careers with Ranieri
Man Utd manager José Mourinho has taken a swipe at Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri ahead of the sides' Community Shield clash.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has launched a barb at Claudio Ranieri ahead of the Community Shield by declaring he would not swap careers with his Leicester City counterpart.
"Ask him if he would change his career with mine"
"I have my career, he has his career," Mourinho said, in comments published by several British newspapers on Sunday.
"Ask him if he would change his career with mine. I would not change mine with his - but it [winning the Premier League] was an unbelievable achievement."
FA Cup holders United and Premier League champions Leicester are due to meet in the Community Shield, the traditional curtain-raiser to the English season, later on Sunday.
Mou and Ranieri have previous
Mourinho, 53, and Ranieri, 64, previously clashed during their time in Italy, when the former was in charge of Inter Milan and the latter coached Juventus and Roma.
Ranieri's 5,000-1 triumph with Leicester last season gave him the first top-flight title of his career.
He has also won the Coppa Italia with Fiorentina and the Copa del Rey with Valencia.
Mourinho, sacked by Chelsea last season, has won eight league titles in four different countries and is a two-time Champions League winner.
