Mourinho on the war path! Blues manager hits out at Sky pundits Souness and Carragher

Carragher has ‘forgotten everything he did on the pitch,’ says Chelsea boss


Jose Mourinho issued a stinging rebuke to the Sky Sports pundits that criticised his Chelsea team, and Graeme Souness in particular, claiming that their words were driven by “envy”.

Mourinho’s Chelsea team were criticised by Souness, and Jamie Carragher for their hounding of the referee Bjorn Kuipers on Wednesday in the seconds before Zlatan Ibrahimovic was red-carded in the Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain. Having said that he had “closed the chapter” of European elimination with his players, Mourinho went on to address his own critics at his Friday Cobham press conference.

Mourinho said: “A season with a Premier League and a Capital One Cup is a brilliant season. A brilliant season. This is the way I am, the way I work. I’m not like people want me to be, or like people like to describe me. I’m like that.

Mourinho even suggested, tongue firmly in cheek, that Carragher and Souness had forgotten about their own past as players. “The world is a bit strange,” Mourinho said. “Maybe because of diet and maybe the quality of the products we are eating, memories are getting shorter. Because, you know, when Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness speak about it, it’s because they are having a problem for sure.”

Mourinho said that the players met on Thursday afternoon to discuss the 2-2 draw with PSG that saw them eliminated from the Champions League. “Not everybody [spoke], one by one, but lots of people were speaking. We were discussing and very interactive, and it was good. But I don’t want to speak details with you.”
