5. Mourinho running out of excuses
Shockingly, yet, predictably, Mourinho chose to blame the referees for poor decisions rather than accept the blame for his team’s sad performance. He blamed penalty decisions and how they impacted his team’s psyche for the defeat.
His ramblings, once treated as the ravings of an eccentric genius, are becoming increasingly manical and Mourinho is running out of excuses. He also seemed to challenge the club hierarchy to sack him, a statement no Chelsea fan would have liked to hear, as it betrayed his fear rather than the composure they would have expected from their beloved “Special One” in their moment of crisis.
