Jose Mourinho appears to still be somewhat salty that Chelsea sacked him in December 2015.

The man formerly known as ‘The Special One’ is renown for using the press as a means of firing shots at whoever finds themselves in his crosshairs, and he has done so once again during an interview with the Times.

Speaking to the Times, Mourinho described the past two champions of England, Leicester City and Chelsea, as ‘super defensive’:

“The past two champions in the Premier League were super defensive teams. Super defensive teams, with a killer counterattack. So be defensive and have a killer counterattack was the way to win the past two Premier Leagues.”

There’s one main issue with that. Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side last campaign scored more Premier League goals than any side managed by Mourinho has managed since his arrival on these shores in 2004.

He can share his opinion on our style of play, and we can respect that, but essentially what he’s doing here is insulting himself.

Historically, Mourinho’s mouth has been the source of most of his problems, and in this case all it has done is embarrass him. He ought to keep it shut in future.

Conte:
16/17: 85 goals

Mourinho:
04/05: 72 goals
05/06: 72 goals
06/07: 64 goals
13/14: 71 goals
14/15: 72 goals

I respect Jose but my advice to him is that mind games aimed at distracting Antonio won’t work. Antonio is focused and won’t be drawn into Mourinho’s games. He (JM) better concentrate on his team, Man United, and leave Antonio alone. Blues for life.

The problem with mourunho is that he doesn’t know when to talk and what to say, should rather concentrate on winning his games not running others down

I love mourinho because he’s the master of mind games player. He is talking directly to himself because that’s the style he’s used to, Arsenal wenger had criticise him on several occasions, even Eden hazard too, but I can’t blame him because he is still bittered and jealous of Chelsea… Read more »

The man is what is known in my place as a BASKET MOUTH. He doesn’t know when he kills himself by himself. I think his head and brains fail him most of the time that he can’t remember condeming what he previously promoted. Just mark my word today, this same… Read more »
