'Carragher has forgotten everything he did on the pitch' -- Jose Mourinho is on the warpath

The Chelsea boss managed to channel both Eric Cantona and ‘The Dude’ in today’s press conference.

CHELSEA MANAGER JOSE Mourinho was waiting to be posed the views of his critics in today’s press conference and he saved his best zingers for Sky Sports.

With a return to Premier League in store for the Portuguese manager on Sunday, he also attempted to insist he was calmly moving on from the Champions League exit at the hands of 10-man PSG.

After that extra-time away goals defeat, Jamie Carragher was joined by Graeme Souness on Sky’s analysis and between them called the Blues ‘disgraceful’ and ‘pathetic’.

The ball’s in your court, Jose.

“Jamie stopped playing a couple of years ago and, in two years, he forget everything he did on the pitch.”


When he turned on Souness, Mourinho turned into the most cryptic version of himself, first sniping in the Scot’s direction about ‘education’ before going full-Cantona with a philosophical one-liner.

“Mr Souness also, but he stopped playing a long times ago. After he left Benfica, I coached Benfica, I know a lot about him, so much about him. But I’m a certain kind of education, not just in football but in life, and I prefer to laugh.

“Envy is the biggest tribute that the shadows do to the man.”

Mourinho sustained his passive aggressive responses towards Sky when presented another question about his Wednesday night woe by Sky’s reporter.

“Why are you so pessimistic in life?” Began the withering answer from the top table.

“It’s more difficult to succeed — maybe you are a guy with great potential and you don’t move on because you’re pessimistic.

“Be optimistic. Believe in yourself, be positive. We want to win against Southampton. We have 11 matches to play, an advantage of five points and a game in hand. We are optimistic.

You look pessimistic. Move on, man.”

We love Jose in this form. So spiteful.
