I’m still your number one, ‘Judas’ Mourinho replies Chelsea fans

I’m still your number one, ‘Judas’ Mourinho replies Chelsea fans

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has hit back at Chelsea fans who called him ‘Judas’ in the bitterly contested FA Cup quarter final clash at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

The former Chelsea boss endured his old club’s fans calling him “Judas” and chanting “you’re not special anymore”.

Mourinho responded to the jibes by holding up three fingers to the crowd to remind them how many Premier League titles he won in his two spells with Chelsea.

And, determined to have the last word, Mourinho, sacked by the Blues last season, took the opportunity to remind Conte and Chelsea’s supporters that they have a long way to go to match his achievements at the Bridge.

“They can call me what they want. I’m a professional,” he said after the game.

“I feel responsibilities on Chelsea’s bad Premier League last season, but when I left we were in the Champions League, winning the Champions League group.

“Now they don’t play in Europe. It’s not my fault.

“Until the moment they have a manager that wins four Premier Leagues, I am number one.

“If a manager wins four I become number two. Until then, Judas is number one.”

The Portugese had also clashed with Chelsea manager, Anthonio Conte, during the game and the pair had to be separated by the fourth official.

Mourinho refused to accept blame for his team’s approach and turned the focus on referee Michael Oliver’s decision to send off Herrera for what was one of the less vicious tackles on Hazard.

“Herrera’s second yellow card, compare that with (Marcus) Rashford going to attack the ball in a counter-attacking situation. He was fouled and the referee doesn’t give a booking,” Mourinho said.

“We all saw the game. We can all agree there was one match until Herrera saw the red card and another after that.

“I thought we were going to win because everything was under control, then with 10 men it was very difficult for us.”

Conte slammed Manchester United’s cynical attempts to intimidate Chelsea.

He was furious with United’s aggressive approach after Ander Herrera was sent off for two fouls on Eden Hazard.
