Controversy and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, go hand-in-glove. While, Chelsea registered a 1-0 win over Liverpool and advanced into the finals of Capital One Cup, Jose Mourinho, was all but predictable. As always, Mourinho, blatantly claimed scandal and asserted that a campaign against Chelsea and especially Deigo Costa, was still underway. However, this time around Mourinho clearly took a jibe at Tv pundit and former Liverpool player Jamie Redknapp. What followed next, was a barrage of Mourinho’ special.
“Maybe you are already influenced by the campaign on the television with the certain pundits saying that Costa has crimes – they must be nuts the guy who says that. I saw the incident and about the penalty I didn’t speak. If I comment about that I will be in trouble.” insisted Mourinho.
The ‘angry one’, this time around, believed that Deigo Costa had not stamped purposely on Can and asserted that it was all part of a ‘campaign’, masterminded by Redknapp.
“Sky calls it a crime, I have to say that it was absolutely accidental. He goes to the ball, he chases it, the opponent goes to the floor and he puts his foot there when he is looking at the ball.
“It is a great campaign, we know how much that pundit loves Chelsea and particularly loves me. When you are there and you are paid, and you are very well paid, much more than some managers that have to put their ass for 90 minutes every week on the bench. You have a very good seat, very good money, no pressure. They are always right, they never lose, they always win and they have to be fair and they have to be honest.”
Mourinho, also took a aimed one for Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers and condemned his act of commenting on Chelsea’s Diego Costa.
“We are very different persons. He worked with me at Chelsea. I don’t know whether or not he learned from me.
“We are different. I could speak about Skrtel and I don’t. He speaks about Courtois and forgets Mignolet. He speaks about my keeper, but when I do I speak about him?
“To say Courtois played fantastic, I could say the same about Mignolet. We have different profiles, he is a fantastic manager but we are different persons.”
Amongst, all this hull-gulla, Chelsea will advance into the finals of Capital One Cup, courtesy of a Branislav Ivanovic header, in the first half of added extra time.
