Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho swore in a clash with Everton boss Roberto Martinez following his club’s loss at Goodison Park on Saturday, sources have confirmed.
Mourinho was, according to several newspapers including The Times and The Daily Telegraph, frustrated at having to wait to conduct his postmatch news conference because Martinez was speaking in the media room first.
After finishing his news conference, Martinez left the room and was speaking to other reporters outside when Mourinho walked past on his way in.
“Roberto next time tell me go before you because we have to travel,” Mourinho said.
“We don’t control that Jose, I don’t control that,” Martinez replied.
It is at this point that Mourinho swore as he continued his way into the media room.
Mourinho was accompanied by Chelsea’s head of communications and public affairs Steve Atkins.
As Mourinho sat down to speak to the press, there was a hint of frustration as Atkins first said a few words to reporters.
He said: “OK, if we could get going quickly that would be great. It is only going to be about five minutes long.
“We had to wait for the home manager to go first and all the players are on the bus, so we are going to be quick.”
Chelsea were beaten 3-1 by Everton, a result that left the Premier League champions with just four points from their first five games of the new season.
