Jose Mourinho: What an Arsenal fan told me after the draw


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists football is all about scoring and not conceding.

Arsenal fans chanted "boring, boring Chelsea" at the end of Sunday's goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium but the Portuguese again rejected claims that Chelsea are dull to watch.

"This morning I met an Arsenal fan of more than 50 years, a gentleman that lives almost next door to me. He congratulated me for my press conference [on Sunday] and said I was spot on," Mourinho said.

"Sometimes I ask myself about the future.

"Maybe the future of football is a beautiful green grass carpet, without goals. On that beautiful grass pitch the team with more ball possession wins the game.

"People say 'my team played fantastically well, we had great ball possession'. Good, but it looks like the goals are not there.

"It's a big contradiction. Sometimes you speak about a team like us who have scored so many goals being boring, but you don't consider a team that has 70 per cent of the ball possession but cannot win the game boring.

"I ask myself in the future, when I am a granddad at home with my grandsons, maybe football will be played without goals, and we will just enjoy seeing people passing the ball.

"Maybe to put the ball into the net won't be an objective, and maybe stopping the ball going into your own goal won't matter.

"For me, I'm simple in my analysis: football is about putting the ball in the net of your opponent and stopping the other team putting the ball in your net."
