4 things we learnt from Mourinho’s press conference this Friday

by Mark Bassey

He is determined to win the Premier League

Jose Mourinho’s latest attempt to win his third Champions League medal, ended with a sorry 2-2 draw against Paris Saint-Germain. The result saw the Ligue 1 champions progress on away goals rule, after the first leg ended 1-1 in Paris. “The people that lost, is the same people who are top of the Premier League since day one and won the Capital One Cup and the same people who will win the Premier League,” he said. “We have 11 matches, we have five point advantage, we have a game in hand. We cannot promise we win every game, but we are optimistic.”

Souness and Carragher’s senility is as because of their diet

The Blues boss also fired at Sky Sports pundits Graeme Souness and Jamie Carragher, after they both criticized his team for putting pressure on the referee against PSG. “The world is a bit strange, what with the diet and the quality of products we are eating, because memories are getting short. When Graeme Souness and Carragher speak about it they are having a problem for sure. The game finished and to close the Champions League chapter, I did that in the tunnel, one by one every one from PSG I shook their hands and told them they deserved it. Jamie stopped two years ago and in two years ago he has forgotten everything. Mr Souness had stopped playing for a long time and he has done that. I was at Benfica a couple of years after him, so I know a lot about him. I prefer to laugh, and I prefer to say that they envy is the biggest tribute to us from people in the shadows.”

No business with Champions League till next week

Mourinho also refused to speak about the Champions League, after they were eliminated this week. “I had a meeting with the players, but I am working for the future. I don’t have to share with you. It was good and interactive. If you want to speak Champions League you gave to go to (Arsene) Wenger or (Manuel) Pellegrino (Pellegrini), they have one match to play. If you want to speak Champions League, speak with them. We lost zero matches – we were not good enough to make the result we needed. We are out of the Champions League, so we speak about it next season. We need to finish in the top four.”

Chelsea players pay fines for surrounding referees

There was a lot of talk about Chelsea players surrounding the referee on Wednesday. But Mourinho has revealed that if they are fined, the culpable players pay. “If the players surround referee we are charged and we have to pay a fine. If we do that the players pay the fine. We have eight or nine months and we were charged once and we paid for that. Go to the Premier League and see how many were charged. We were charged once.”
