THEY MAY HAVE gone head-to-head in Saturday’s early kick-off but reports emerged late last night of a bust-up between Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho and Everton manager Roberto Martinez.

The incident, which has been described as “furious”, ended with Mourinho reportedly swearing at Martinez as he continues to feel the pressure of Chelsea’s below-par start to the season.

Martinez had just given his post-game press conference and was standing outside Goodison Park’s media room speaking to national newspapers, when Mourinho reportedly stormed in.

The Chelsea boss interrupted Martinez, apparently anxious to get home to London following his side’s 3-1 defeat.

“Roberto, next time you tell me go before you, because we have to travel,” Mourinho said.

As the Everton manager tried to explain it was his club’s media department that arranged the order of the post-game press events, Mourinho reportedly replied, “fucking hell.”

As Mourinho left, Martinez observed:

“When he beat us 6-3 (last season) he was such a nice man. I prefer him like that.”
