Jose Mourinho laughs off bust-up claims between John Terry and Diego Costa


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has accused the media of going over the top in their criticism of his side's start to the new campaign.

A number of reports at the start of the week claimed that captain John Terry was involved in a training ground bust-up with Diego Costa.

But the Portuguese was quick to laugh off the story as a "Wild West" duel between the two.

"Normally when bad results happen the first thing that comes into your laptops, tablets, and pens is to find a dramatic story," Mourinho told reporters.

"Somebody punched somebody in the dressing room. The manager doesn't want to speak to this guy. Mourinho doesn't want to give a new contract to John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic. Mourinho instructs the scouts to find a right-back urgently.

"Diego Costa fought with John Terry - and before they started the fight they brought the translator for them to understand each other in the fight. They organised it like Wild West duels: we are going to fight at this time, let's bring a translator to help us!

"You always go in this direction. The other direction you don't go in is the direction that is real.

"[And] problems between me and my players I can promise you - zero."
