Barcelona vice-president Carles Vilarrubi has described Jose Mourinho as a "scourge", insisting that Spanish football will be a better place without the Real Madrid coach.
It was announced by Madrid yesterday that the Portuguese coach will leave the club at the end of the season following a disappointing campaign, which has so far left them 13 points behind title winners Barcelona.
"Now I can say it, Mourinho has been a scourge," Vilarrubi told Catalunya Radio.
"Seeing him leave is a positive for Spanish football because he had created a negative atmosphere."
Widespread reports have claimed that Mourinho will be in charge of his former club Chelsea in time for next season.
