Chelsea boss Mourinho and West Brom’s Olsson in tunnel bust-up

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and West Bromwich Albion captain Jonas Olsson were at the centre of a 20-man bust-up in the tunnel after the controversial draw between the two sides in the Premier League on Saturday, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

The scuffle began, the newspaper claims, when Mourinho referred to Olsson as a “Mickey Mouse player” as the teams left the field following the 2-2 draw. Chelsea had been trailing in the match at Stamford Bridge until the final minutes when Eden Hazard converted a penalty contentiously-awarded by Andre Marriner.

Stewards and members of the Chelsea staff had to separate the teams after Olsson replied to Mourinho’s remark by telling the Portuguese to “shut up and f**k off,” drawing a reaction from Mourinho and the two squared up to each other. Mourinho had also reminded Olsson that West Brom benefitted from a questionable refereeing decision in Stephane Sessegnon’s goal to put the Baggies in the lead.

The newspaper adds however that Olsson and Mourinho put the skirmish behind them and shook hands as the West Brom players boarded the coach to leave the ground. An FA statement said the governing body was unaware of any incident between the teams.

Chelsea are fourth in the table following the draw with Albion, four points behind league leaders Arsenal. West Brom, meanwhile, are 10th, with 14 points from their 11 games.
