Jose Mourinho tells Chelsea fans “I’m still number one”
Jose Mourinho told Chelsea fans “I’m still number one” after his Manchester United side got knocked out of the FA Cup at the Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho was sacked two times by Chelsea and was called “Judas” by the fans after losing 1-0 to Chelsea over the weekend, he responded back to the fans by pointing three fingers in reference of winning three league titles whilst he was at the Chelsea club.
He said: “Until the moment they have a manager that wins four Premier Leagues for them, I’m the number one”.
“Until then, Judas is number one.”
The low shot from N’Golo Kante was enough to win the game for Chelsea , with Ander Herrera sent off and Chelsea set for a semi-final against Tottenham.
Jose Mourinho who is 54, is Chelsea’s best ever manager after winning titles in 2005, 2006 and 2016.
He said: “They can call me what they want. I am a professional. I defend my club”.
“I’m really proud of my players, I’m really proud of Manchester United fans.”
Mourinho would not talk about the Herrera red card, calling referee Michael Oliver “a referee with fantastic potential”.
He said: “I don’t want to go in that direction. In four matches he [Oliver] has given three penalties and a red card. I cannot change that. I shook his hand and said many congratulations”.
“Mr Oliver goes home and he can do his own analysis, because I don’t want to analyse his work.”
In other new Antonio Conte accused United of targeting Hazard in the match.
