Jose Mourinho has hit out at Vicente del Bosque over his handling of Chelsea players in the Spain squad…
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has had a number of run-ins with Spain coach Vicente del Bosque over the last few months, with the pair clashing several times regarding Diego Costa.
The Portuguese manager was asked recently about the situation, and gave a rather frosty response when del Bosque was mentioned, reports the Daily Star.

Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa both pulled out of the Spain’s recent international fixtures, with the pair missing a friendly loss against Germany last week as well as a Euro 2016 qualifying victory over Belarus.
Questions were raised over the severity of their injuries, something which Mourinho was not happy about. The Portuguese manager claimed that the doctors were the ones that made the call, and that del Bosque bringing his players’ integrity into question was unacceptable.
“My doctor and the doctor of the Spanish national team, they had the scans and they decided that the player was not in the condition to play,” he said.
“I trust my doctor 100 per cent. If Del Bosque doesn’t trust his doctor that is his problem, not my problem.”
Both players turned out for Chelsea in their dominant 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League this weekend, but Mourinho claimed, “Diego recovered totally from his problem with these two weeks that he had to rest and to improve his injury. Fabregas is different.”
