Jose Mourinho insists he does not care about Andre Villas-Boas' comments towards him, adding he is “not a kid” in discussing relationships with the media.
Tottenham manager Villas-Boas, who worked under Mourinho during his first spell as Chelsea boss, as well as at Porto and Inter Milan, revealed their breakdown in relationship was down to him wanting to move on his career, while stating that the pair are no longer friends.
However, when Mourinho was asked to describe his relationship with the Spurs boss, he refused to be drawn into the debate.
"I would not describe it because I am not a kid, discussing relationships. I don't discuss this with the media. It's a personal thing. I don't care what he says. I'm not here to do that. I'm not interested," he said.
"I have had so many assistants in my career. I was always an open book to them and with the coaches in the academy. Will I go for a glass of wine with him? When people invite me I always go. I never refuse.
"But I have nothing more to say on this."
Despite Mourinho being pitted against Villas-Boas when Tottenham welcome Chelsea on Saturday, the former Real Madrid boss says he is still very much excited about the clash.
“I look forward to playing Tottenham as always -- always big matches, good matches,” he said. “I played them with Harry [Redknapp], with Martin [Jol], also in my first season with Jacques Santini. I always like to do so. I know there is rivalry, I know it's one more London derby, and I like these matches."
