Chelsea balls: Le Saux says Mourinho is bad for football
Former Chelsea defender Graeme Le Saux says Jose Mourinho’s row with Dr Eva Carneiro has been bad for football:
“What concerns me most, given the work I’m doing for the FA, is the impact Mourinho’s behaviour may have throughout the whole game.”
Le Saux has a seat on the FA’s Inclusion Advisory Board.
“We’re trying to deal with some very sensitive issues and to change the culture of the game. Some good people at the FA have taken a kicking after concluding there was insufficient evidence to charge Mourinho, whilst the whole furore may also deter women from becoming involved in football, as well as discouraging clubs from employing them.”
He had us right up to ‘women’, portrayed by Le Saux as being so weak that a few bitchy barbs from Mourinho and they will rule out a role in professional football.
