Chelsea’s Mourinho still perplexed by FA decisions

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has expressed even more frustration over different decisions by the FA following more controversial moments during the weekend’s football, Sky Sports is reporting.

The Portuguese has in recent times repeatedly claimed there has been a ‘campaign’ against his league leaders after many pundits scrutinised a number of decisions that went to and against Chelsea.

Mourinho believed this was influencing officials on match days and his frustrations boiled over when striker Diego Costa was banned for three matches following retrospective punishment for a stamp on Liverpool’s Emre Can during their Capital One Cup semi-final win.

Having been fined £25,000 for his suggestions the Chelsea manager refused to conduct press duties for their home game against Manchester City before returning last weekend.

However, when facing the media on Tuesday he again appeared perplexed by FA procedures after a player, who he refused to name, seemingly got away with an apparent elbow to another player’s face at the weekend – thought to be Manchester United’s Robin van Persie.

He said: “I was in a good mood the other day.

“I needed a little bit more time to forget why my player (Costa) was suspended.

“I need a little bit more time to understand why some people are punished, others aren’t. I need a little bit of time to process that.

“The same people that suspended my player didn’t want to suspend a player this weekend. This weekend he could.”

When asked who he was talking about Mourinho simply gestured towards his elbow before stating if it had been one of his players they would most definitely be facing sanctions.

The Portuguese did not stop there however, and also hinted to the press that he would be facing action from the FA if he had been the one involved in Nigel Pearson’s tussle with a player on Saturday.
