Jose Mourinho hits back at his team's critics: I prefer to laugh


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was not amused by the criticism levelled against his team after last Wednesday's Champions League exit.

The Blues were accused of gamesmanship by many pundits for the way they surrounded referee Bjorn Kuipers who took the harsh decision to send off striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

And Mourinho was quick to launch an attack on Graeme Souness and Jamie Carragher by claiming they need to revise their diets before making any further comments.

"One by one in the tunnel after the PSG game, I shook the hands of not just their players but the coaches and everyone else from PSG," Mourinho said on Friday afternoon.

"I told them they deserved to win and good luck for the future.

"This is the way we behave after a defeat. I am not like the way people sometimes like to describe me.

"The world is a bit strange, maybe because of diets and the quality of the products we are eating, I think memories are getting shorter. Because when Carragher and Souness speak about it, it is because they are having a problem for sure.

"[Jamie] Carragher stopped playing two years ago and it seems he's forgotten everything on the pitch.

"Mr. [Graeme] Souness has also forgotten, though he stopped playing a long time ago. He also forgets that I know so much about him, because he left Benfica as coach.

"But I prefer to laugh and to say the envy is the biggest thing that the shadows do to the man."
