Chelsea Balls: Jose Mourinho Fails To Add Up To Manchester City

by | 7th, March 2014

THE wisdom of Chelsea’s chatty manager Jose Mourinho:

On February 10 2014, Mourinho snipes at Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini:

“Everybody knows what Manchester City are. Pellegrini was talking about the money we’ve spent. He’s a fantastic coach, and I respect that, and he’s a qualified engineer. I don’t think an engineer should need a calculator to see that we sold Juan Mata for £37 million and Kevin De Bruyne for £18m – so that’s £55m brought in. Then we bought Nemanja Matic for £21m and Mohamed Salah cost £11m. That’s £32m spent.”

On February 26 2014, Jose Mourinho snipes about Galatasaray manager Roberto Mancini:

“I’m not good at maths. And football is not maths. If football was maths, I’d be coaching in the Third Division. Because football is not maths, I coach Chelsea.”

Such is the consistency…
