Jose Mourinho had a scuffle with Liverpool’s captain Steven Gerrad at the touchline in Chelsea’s 2 – 0 win over Liverpool.
Mourinho had attempted to prevent Gerrad from making a quick throw-in 10 minutes into the game. Chelsea were already been accused of time wasting so the captain wrestled with the coach for the ball and his effort was met with a huge cheer by his fans at Anfield.
“He’s being an idiot. He’s got the hump with the FA, he’s got the hump with everyone and probably got the hump because he’s ill. He’s just being an idiot.”
Mourinho had to travel separately from the team as it was announced that he was ill and he didn’t want to pass it onto the team.
Initially Mourinho had warned that he would be fielding a very young team against Liverpool as they prepare for the second leg of the UEFA Champions League tie against Atletico Madrid next week.
But trust the Portuguese and his minds games. He pulled the rug by playing a largely experienced side in his attempt to halt the Reds trophy chase. Few of us gave him and The Blues a chance yet they had emerged winners. He certainly knew how to break the hearts of Liverpool fans.
Jose Mourinho’s off the field scuffles are becoming a tad too many. He should be called to order. His status is way beyond all these. Where the opposing team to indulge in time wasting activities and he lost, he would cry foul as usual.
