Fresh from his £10,000 FA fine, Jose Mourinho has risked further ire by complaining about negative results this season that he felt were 'not English'.
But during press conference at Cobham this afternoon, he again raised the suggestion that Chelsea had been unfairly deprived of points in those games.
“I like to be back,” said the Blues' boss of being back in England. “Obviously I enjoy most if the things that happened.
“I don't enjoy defeats but I have to say for example that to lose at Crystal Palace is English football.
“To lose at Newcastle in spite of a very good first first half – that is English football.
“To lose like we did against Sunderland or Aston Villa is not English football.
“I like Enlgish football. I don't like what isn't English football.
“What happened happened. What happened against Sunderland and Aston Villa isn't English football.”
Asked about plans mooted yesterday by the FA for a new 'B' league for young players, Mourinho was tight-lipped.
“I am afraid to comment because if I comment in a positive way I can be punished; if I comment in a negative way I can be punished.
“So I come up with a very English answer, which is 'no comment'. No comments because I don't want to pay £9,000.”
