Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte had some problems in the past few weeks, but now the Portuguese defends his former team and the Italian manager who are being criticised after their poor Premier League results vs Manchester United and Manchester City.
“Honestly, I know what you are writing as a consequence of yesterday,” Mourinho said after Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on Monday evening. “But Chelsea is a fantastic team and, I know it looks a bit strange because you know we had problems in the past, but it’s quite ridiculous that I have to say how unfair it is to speak the way people are speaking about the English champion. ‘They are still the English champion. Chelsea was strong against us. They started very strong and created difficulty in that initial part of the game.”
