Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has hit out at allegedly "unqualified comments" made by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho ahead of Friday's Super Cup showdown between the two sides.
During the pre-game press conference, Mourinho reacted angrily to a journalist stating that he had won just three of his 15 previous meetings against Bayern manager Pep Guardiola -- dating back to their feud as respective bosses of Barcelona and Real Madrid, telling the reporter, "Your statistics are wrong."
Mourinho later conceded that perhaps it was he who had erred in terms of the head-to-head record, but Hoeness was still less than impressed by the way in which the former Inter and Madrid trainer had responded to the line of questioning.
"I do think that the match [against Chelsea] is about prestige," Hoeness told Kicker. "Especially since Mourinho has, again, made some unqualified comments ahead of the match.
"So, I think our coach will be fired up about this game."
