Chelsea transfer rumours
According to CaughtOffside, the Serbian international, suspended for the game at Wembley, was especially selected due to being so upset at missing the game.
One of Chelsea’s best players this season, Matic was harshly suspended for the Spurs clash following his controversial red card in last week’s draw with Burnley.
“The boy [Matic] was sad, we were sad for him,” Mourinho said.
“He made the speech in the dressing room where he expressed his pain and asked the players to have the pleasure he couldn’t have.”
