The Blues manager took exception to comments made by Redknapp in his role as a Sky Sports pundit, in which he reasoned that striker Diego Costa deserved to be sent off after appearing to stamp on both Emre Can and Martin Skrtel.

Mourinho, was was quoted by the Daily Mirror, hit-back by saying: “I don’t know what you understand by a stamp.

“Maybe you are already influenced by the campaign on the television with the certain pundits saying that Costa has crimes – they must be nuts, the guy who says that.

“Sky calls it a crime. I have to say that he goes to the ball, he chases it, the opponent goes to the floor and he puts his foot there when he is looking at the ball. It is a great campaign.

“We know how much that pundit loves Chelsea. So you are sitting there, you are very well paid and you are a manager putting their ass on the bench.

“These guys have a good seat, earning a lot of money, no pressure, they are never wrong. They have to be fair and they have to be honest. I don’t know his name because when I see it I switch off the television.”

  1. I understand mourinho deending his players. But Costa should have been sent off. If that was the other way around and it was a Liverpool player mourinho would be crying too. When he first arrived at Chelsea he was entertaining, now he’s been Asshole. One rule for his players and himself and another for everyone else.
