Ray Stubbs And Jose Mourinho Had The Best Post-Match Interview In A Long Time

Ray Stubbs And Jose Mourinho Had The Best Post-Match Interview In A Long Time
By Conor O'Leary Updated

Jose Mourinho has had quite a day. It began with a 30-second pre-match interview in which he walked away after being asked about Everton's John Stones.

Then Stones and his team-mates beat the Premier League champions 3-1 in a brilliant performance that consigned Chelsea to their third defeat in five games to open the season.

Then came this fantastic interview. It's significantly longer than the pre-match interview and features so many quotable Jose Mourinho-isms it's amazing. The full seven minutes are worth watching, but here are a small selection of his best lines:

Too wrong for our quality, too wrong for our status, and too wrong for what our players deserve.

I know that now is easy for everyone to criticise me and the players, and that we don't fight for nothing. I completely disagree, I completely disagree.

I am the champion, the players are the champions.

And that's just the first 45 seconds.


I don't blame my players, I don't blame. I don't accept the result.

You do have to admire his attitude to the situation, and how he is resolving to help things:

The priority is to keep doing what we are doing.

They have enough frustration, the last thing they need right now is for me to be critical. Let's work the same way we are doing, let's wait for better days, let's wait for better results.

I don't think there is a better manager for Chelsea to do the job.

And then he made this great point about even if things go badly - it happens for big teams before they bounce back:


We cannot be afraid of relegation. Last year for example, Borussia Dortmund were in the relegation zone so many months, and everybody knows they are not going to be relegated.

It's the full range of Jose Mourinho today.
