Jose Mourinho throws away Community Shield medal, says it's a matter of perspective


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says Arsenal's change in attitude on the pitch played a major role in their narrow win over his side in Sunday's FA Community Shield match.

The Gunners won the trophy for a second season in a row as they beat the Blues at Wembley.

But the Portuguese, who threw away the Community Shield medal according to Goal, was not amused by the way Arsenal defended in the second half.

"For me it depends on the perspective," Mourinho said after the defeat.

"Normally you [the media] like to say a team that is defensive and defends very well doesn't deserve to win.

"But I also have my opinion, different from your opinion.

"My opinion is the team that defends very well, that leaves their philosophy in the dressing room, changes their attitude, plays all the second half with nine players in front of the box, doesn't concede and scores one goal, from that perspective they deserve to win.

"This is football. This is very good tactical organisation. Congratulations to them.

"I never had a psychological edge [over Arsene Wenger].

"It's not normal what happened before, and because it's not normal I never paid attention to that. I always thought one game is one game and has no relation with other games.

"Thirteen matches is an eternity. It has never been a question of beating someone and losing to another one."
