Mourinho breaks his silence to continue criticism of referees.
After putting assistant Steve Holland on media duty last weekend following his FA charge, Jose Mourinho has once again hit out at Premier League refereeing decisions ahead of this weekend’s clash with Swansea City, reports the Daily Star.
Mourinho claimed that “every decision” has been going against his team, whilst also saying that he did not want to criticise the standard of Premier League refereeing, and also using examples from Manchester United’s recent draw at Stoke City to try and back up his claim of double standards:
“The reality is that every decision is going against us and results have been affected by that.”
“Referees are not guilty. They want to do their best. But clearly with my club and in relation to myself there are different standards. It’s as simple as that. I’ll tell you a good example. Was it a penalty in the Stoke v Man United game? The Chris Smalling handball?”
