Published

on

Man Utd coach, Jose Mourinho is known for his controversies and seems to be getting into trouble every week.

Mourinho during Man Utd home match against Newcastle Utd had said some abusive words to football fans at Old Trafford.

However, the Portugal international this time around didn’t make use of abusive words but rather he saluted Chelsea fans with three fingers after the game between the Blues and Man Utd yesterday at Stamford.

But the three fingers salute have been described to be a taunting sign and not a sign of respect for the Blues fans.

According to an analysis, the three fingers meant Jose Mourinho was indirectly telling Chelsea fans he won three English Premier League titles for them.

However, the salutation came after the melee that took place between Jose Mourinho and Chelsea assistant coach, Marco Ianni – when the Man Utd coach left his dugout and ran after Ianni to the tunnel.

In respect to Marco Ianni’s display yesterday, coach Maurizio Sarri has stated that Ianni will get the punishment for his poor sportsmanship display.

Despite Jose Mourinho’s shortcomings, he still remains one of Chelsea’s best ever coach.

Chelsea following their draw against Man Utd are now seated at the third spot on the EPL table.

David Luiz

Despite Chelsea getting an equalizer against Man Utd at the last few minutes to the end of the game, the Blues center back defender, David Luiz has taken time out to slam his former coach Jose Mourinho.

According to David Luiz, Chelsea were the only one that played in the first half, which is quite obvious as Man Utd only had one shot on target.

But the second half was different, especially after Anthony Martial’s first goal which boosted the Red Devils confidence, they changed their tactics and came out more than the way they did in the first half.

David Luiz hinted that had Chelsea scored the second goal before Man Utd’s first equalizer, the Red Devils would have played a defensive game all through.

The Brazil star in a statement hinted that Chelsea ”tried to win from the beginning of the game.”

He stressed that Chelsea had the ball possessions and were ready to play real football but Man Utd ‘came with a plan just to defend and play on the counter-attack.’

Well, the game was played as expected, many football fans knew Mourinho would surely park the bus against Chelsea and could have done it all through the match if not for Martial’s first goal that boosted their confidence.

Tiemoue Bakayoko

The Blues were held to a draw by Man Utd following a double from the Red Devils striker, Anthony Martial yesterday.

Following the outcome of the match, Anthony Martial had taken to a popular social media site, Twitter to celebrate his goals for Man Utd.

However, Chelsea loanee, Tiemoue Bakayoko went ahead to like the tweet – which to the Blues fans looked like he was mocking them.

Chelsea fans as expected took to their Twitter handles to slam the former Monaco star while Man Utd fans applauded Bakayoko for liking the tweet.

Although there is nothing wrong in liking a tweet of a fellow player, what Tiemoue Bakayoko should have known is that it is wrong to celebrate a player that put up great performances against his parent club.

Anthony Martial was the man of the match yesterday, and by liking his tweet, Tiemoue Bakayoko had indirectly mocked Chelsea even if that might not have been his intention.

Chelsea signed Bakayoko from Monaco for £40 million but since he joined them he had struggled to perform in the midfield.

The Blues decided to let him go on loan to AC Milan in other to help him gain more experience but the Italian club have recently expressed their regret for signing him with indications that he could be sent back to Chelsea in January.
