Jose Mourinho has decided to take a rather unnecessary dig at the Chelsea supporters in his programme notes ahead of Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Juventus.
Mourinho was taunted by Chelsea fans throughout Saturday’s game at the Bridge, mostly due to his efforts to start an all-out brawl in the technical area following a run-in with Chelsea coach Marco Ianni.
What did he expect? Mourinho hasn’t exactly been the most respectful to Chelsea since departing. His feud with manager Antonio Conte left relations with the Blues faithful strained, the relationship hasn’t yet repaired.
Mourinho has now made matters worse by criticising the Stamford Bridge atmosphere during Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Man United at the weekend. See below.

We’re not sure what Jose’s on about here. The atmosphere at the Bridge was good on Saturday. The TV channels were forced to reduce the volume on “f*** off Mourinho” chants. Perhaps he has selective hearing.
Who cares, anyway. We’re up in third, while United are down in tenth. Mourinho can keep on whinging, and we’ll keep on winning.
