Jose Mourinho's verdict on the referee's controversial decisions


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says Zlatan Ibrahimovic's red card should be overturned, allowing the striker to feature in Paris Saint-Germain's next game in the Champions League.

In a game packed with controversy, the 33-year-old was shown a straight red for his challenge on Oscar and will miss upcoming games for the French giants.

"I was very far from the [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic situation and I couldn't see it," Mourinho told reporters.

"I spoke with him after the game, and when he speaks with me he's always honest. He would tell me if there was a reason for a red card.

"He was very disappointed. If that's the case I hope they can minimise the mistake and let him play in the quarter-finals because if he did nothing wrong he deserves that."

Asked about Edinson Cavani's challenge on Diego Costa, the Portuguese said: "It was a clear penalty on Diego Costa.

"Once more I think it's a waste of time and money to have officials behind the goal because normally they do nothing. If he cannot see a penalty 10 metres in from him where it's completely clear it's a waste of time and money.

"David's [Luiz's] elbow I didn't see, but when UEFA gives him the man of the match I have to believe there was no elbow because I can't believe UEFA would give man of the match to someone who made an aggression.

"Because they cannot give us the penalty, maybe they can do what is fair from the disciplinarian point of view and suspend David and take the red card off Ibra and let him play in the quarter-finals."
