Chelsea boss Mourinho ‘afraid of commenting’
Jose Mourinho has responded to his fine for speaking out of turn after Chelsea were beaten by Sunderland by claiming his is now afraid to say anything, ESPN has reported.
Mourinho was fined £10,000 for sarcastically congratulating Mike Dean and referees’ chief Mike Riley for their performances following the Black Cats’ 2-1 win over the Blues at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking at a Press conference prior to Chelsea’s final game of the season, against relegated Cardiff City, Mourinho insinuated he didn’t know what he was allowed to say anymore, so was going to say nothing. “I am afraid of commenting, if I comment in a positive way I can be punished, if I comment in a negative way I can be punished,” Mourinho said when asked for his thoughts on the FA’s B team idea.
“I have to adapt to the situation and that is to come with a very English answer which is no comment.”
Rui Faria, one of Mourinho’s backroom team, was sent to the stands against Sunderland after attempting to confront the official on the touchline and received a six-game stadium ban.
