Jose Mourinho's Abrupt Reactions To The Ivanovic/McCarthy Possible Headbutt

Things got a little heated between James McCarthy and Branislav Ivanovic during Chelsea's 1-0 win over Everton last night, with the Chelsea defender being accused of grabbing the Irishman by the neck and also headbutting (a football kind of headbutt) him.

After the match Mourinho was asked about the headbutt incident and gave a quick, four word answer.


With BBC's Jonathan Pearce, he had an even more abrupt response.

After the game Roberto Martinez argued that Ivanovic should have been sent off for incident.

He reacts in a very forceful manner (to McCarthy). He puts his head against him. That's a red card.

If you look at the images Ivanovic's behaviour is wrong. That shouldn't be allowed.

The Everton manager also made a point of the fact McCarthy did not retaliate:


He grabs James McCarthy around his neck in a very forceful manner, then he puts his head against him when James McCarthy never reacted one single bit.

Sure it wouldn't normal Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday without a Jose Mourinho talking point.
