Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho gave his latest headline-grabbing interview in the wake of his team's 2-1 home loss to Sunderland, which ended his 77-game unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge with the Blues.
Said Mourinho (full B/R report here):
First I congratulate my players. Secondly congratulations to Sunderland—it doesn't matter how or why they won, but they won. Thirdly I want to congratulate Mike Dean. Fantastic performance. And finally congratulations to Mike Riley—the referees boss.
We'll leave Twitter to pass judgement.
To be honest, Mourinho should go leave his next interview in Gladiator fashion, shouting "Are you not entertained?!"— Ramon Isaac (@mowingmeadows) April 19, 2014
Mourinho has just given one of his press conference performances - but it's Liverpool's show now.— Jonathan Northcroft (@JNorthcroft) April 19, 2014
Mourinho winning: Entertaining. Mourinho losing: Must-see TV.— Andres Cordero (@DreCordero) April 19, 2014
To be fair, you can't fine a manager for sarcastically congratulating the ref. Think Mourinho's worked a way around that rule.— The Peoples Person (@PeoplesPerson_) April 19, 2014
Embarrassing, Mourinho. Really embarrassing.— Jonathan Stevenson (@Stevo_football) April 19, 2014
Mourinho existence/acceptance direct result of football today being an artless war. Win at all costs, by any means, winning is everything.— The Giggs Boson (@giggs_boson) April 19, 2014
Whatever you say about Mourinho, you can't deny he keeps us entertained.
