Showing the extent of the strain between the pair, it was reported that the world cup winner was absent at the testimonial match of Wayne Rooney against former club, Everton FC.

Stefanovic, in his comments on the matter opined that Mourinho deserves a 3-year prison sentence for his behaviour.

He said, “This is clearly meant to discourage Bastian. Mourinho is setting a bad example. I would take it to the ordinary court."

“In our case, the penal code is quite clear. If there is bullying and harassment, there’s a prison sanction, a maximum of three years in prison."

“Schweinsteiger should turn to the Professional Footballers’ Association and he should file a complaint and I would also seek penalty for Mourinho."

“All the players of the first team have to train with the coaches of the first team at the same place, at the same time as all other team-mates."

“That’s something that should be applied to each and every club and should be written within FIFA regulations.”
