King of Translators?

Former France coach Raymond Domenech lambasts Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. The book, called Mon dico passione du foot or ‘My Passionate Dictionary of Football’, takes readers through an A to Z of his experiences in the game. He mocks Mourinho, pointing to the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager’s beginnings in football as a translator. “That’s the problem with translators, there comes a time when they convince themselves they wrote the text themselves,” he says.

In an earlier post, this was mentioned.

    I wouldn’t say they’re hated but there are certainly people who would rather we were a machine. 😉
