Why I fell out with Mourinho — Real Madrid star

Liverpool legend Michael Owen has thanked striker Karim Benzema for selecting Real Madrid instead of Manchester United because the Frenchman's decision allowed him to play for the Red Devils.

A two-time Champions League victor with Porto and Inter, Mourinho moved to Real Madrid in 2010 to try to bring La Decime to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Benzema has now revealed in a documentary made by Canal Plus France that he and Mourinho did not have any major problems between them, but the forward did take issue with his manager once saying in a press conference that the 29-year-old's attacking presence was like going hunting with a cat.

"I've got a lot to thank [Benzema] for, he might not know".

"Following that there were no further stories about cats, dogs or anything else".

"I thought those comments made him laugh and even though there was respect, I started to become irritated".

"I told him that I respected him but that respect between a Coach and a player should be neutral and after that there were no more comments". [I said to him] "I am a footballer, you are my coach and I respect you but you have to respect me also as a footballer".

"It's always better to speak your mind and I'm usually quiet but if I'm annoyed, I will say so".
