Did we expect anything else though?

Having hinted that he would field a weakened side at Anfield as Chelsea concentrated on winning the Champions League, the press were keen to find out if this would be the case as he held his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to Anfield.

Staring intently ahead, when asked if a weakened team would be fielded, Jose replied,

‘The most important thing for me is my club and the supporters of my club. I have to defend my club and I have to defend Chelsea supporters. If we are not helped to try to follow our dreams and objectives, one more reason for us to try to think about us and only about us.’

But the answer didn`t placate the press who pushed Jose a little further forcing the Special One to further reply,

‘Do you want me to laugh or cry. I can’t say the truth because I don’t feel free. I can’t speak. I play mind games? You wait for Sunday and Sunday you will know our team.”

‘Every time I speak there is a consequence. I don’t feel free at all. If you want a better press conference speak with the FA.’


Vintage Jose, absolutely vintage Jose!
