In early 2015, José Mourinho was sanctioned after complaining to the draw between his team and Southampton on December 29. Since that day, the Portuguese used a cautious tactic where irony and sarcasm have taken place. After the draw against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, former Real Madrid's coach attended the TV show for Sky Sports, Goals on Sunday to return to talk about the injustices that supposedly his team are suffering from this early season.
"I only remember an arbitration decision in our favor all season so far, and we could even say that it was doubtful"
"Depending on what I say, I'm risking because I can be suspended to having this conversation with here in the studio with you (presenters) but it could be in my house..."
"I can not go too far but the reality of this incidents is that it happens here, in the same position, in the same place week after week"
"Football sometimes goes in you favor and sometimes it's bad for you, but I think that what happens to us too many times"
"If we are in a normal situation, the 5 points difference ahead Manchester City would be now 12. The 2 points that we did not win against Southampton, the 3 against Tottenham ..."
The statements did not end there, labeling the foul from Barnes (Burnley) on Matic (Chelsea) of 'criminal'. What led to the sent off of the blue player, for a pushing to the player who had received a tough foul. "Matic is a lucky player, the input received could have ended his career."
Furthermore, he defended the striker Diego Costa, from whom he said that from the same channel which was being interviewed for, he was treated virtually a criminal, with videos and images of fouls by the Brazilian.
In the post-match of this Saturday, he bite his tongue often in the press room, and in a flash-interview minutes after the draw he said this: "There are four moments where you can read the story of the game. Minute 30, 33, 43 and 69 (Matic sent off). I do not say anything, because I can not talk about it." Mourinho for real.
