Richard Keys, who resigned from his Sky Sports presenting role in 2011, claims the broadcaster ‘pre-arranged’ Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s interview for Goals on Sunday.
Mourinho was left fuming after comments made by the Sky Sports pundits regarding Diego Costa’s stamp on Liverpool defender Emre Can, which Keys says is the reason behind his appearance.
The Blues wanted to mend the damaged relationship between the two, reports CaughtOffside.
“So Mourinho turns up Sunday morning on Sky Sports. My first question was ‘what is a highly paid BT ambassador doing on Sky?’ A quick call or two later and I had the answer,” Keys claimed in his blog.
“It was all pre arranged. It was a decision made at the ‘highest’ levels of the broadcaster and Chelsea as they tried to clear the air after recent problems between the two, started by something Jamie Redknapp said I’m told. I don’t know for sure because I’m busy doing my own job when he’s on air.”
