Mourinho's outburst at Martinez caught on mic
Jose Mourinho's fuse appears to be getting ever shorter.
The Chelsea manager vented his frustration at Everton boss Roberto Martinez, following the Blue’s 3-1 defeat by the Toffees on Saturday.
The Chelsea manager, who had already expressed his displeasure with Martinez after the John Stones transfer saga, was further infuriated that Martinez broke managerial etiquette by conducting his post-game interview first, which in turn delayed Chelsea’s return trip.
Mourinho had been advised by a steward to walk down the touchline and up a set of stairs so he could give his own press conference, but ignored what he was told and made a beeline for Martinez.
The Everton manager was still talking to the press near the pitch when Mourinho came up to him and said: “Roberto, next time tell me to go before you because we have to travel.”
In response, Martinez said: “We don’t control that Jose, I don’t control that.”
But Mourinho was in no mood to listen and fired back: “F****** hell!”
Martinez wryly told the journalists: “When he beat us 6-3 (last season), he was such a nice man. I prefer him like that!”
