Needless to say, Jose Mourinho has been in no mood for questions about himself after recent losses.
Jose Mourinho didn’t take kindly to a reporter’s incessant questioning about his track record in the third year of his tenures with different clubs and had an angrily-witty response to the doubters.
According to the Telegraph, the Chelsea boss engaged in a “war of words” with the inquisitive writer and told him to “click Google” after asking about his third year with various clubs. Mourinho also called the inquiry a “stupid question” and then went through the laundry list of successes he had.
“Do you believe that you still have all of the qualities that made you such a great manager? A lot has been made of the third season in your time at clubs,” the journalist asked.
Mourinho responded by stating he didn’t have a third season at Porto or Inter Milan. He reminded everyone that he won the Super Cup and had runner-up finishes in La Liga and the Copa Del Ray as well as a Champions League semi-final appearance in his third year with Real Madrid. Mourinho added that in his third year with Chelsea during his first stint., he won the League Cup, the FA Cup, a second-place finish for the Community Shield, a second-place finish in the Premier League and a semi-final appearance in the Champions League.
“These are my third seasons. Click Google instead of mak(ing) stupid questions. Click Google and try to find (them),” Mourinho said.
“I have nothing to show, to anyone. Nothing,” the Special One said later. “Nobody can steal what we are, nobody can steal our trophies, nobody can steal our history. We know what we are: Champions of England.”
Chelsea have lost three of their first five matches but may get a breather in the Champions League when they square off against Maccabi Tel-Aviv at home on Wednesday.
