The Grifoni tactician has given his support to the under-fire Portuguese ahead of their face-to-face at Marassi tomorrow.
“Mourinho probably said a few harsh things, perhaps not using very balanced terms,” Genoa coach Gian Piero Gasperini told Turin-based paper La Stampa.
“But I reckon that some ideas, when expressed by an important coach like him - a cultured person who has had experiences in other countries - should not be underestimated because they can bring us to better observe our reality.
“All in all, I think that the controversy sparked by his declarations at least managed to push the entire football world to take a hard look at itself.”
