Jose Mourinho: Chelsea Still Need Milk And To Learn To Jump

Jose Mourinho: Chelsea Still Need Milk And To Learn To Jump

With the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, it seemed that the beauty of the Premier League mind-game may have been at risk of serious extinction. But thankfully last night Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, reminded us all that physiological one-upmanship is here to stay.

After seeing his team defeat title favourites Manchester City 1-0 on their own patch, Mourinho was up to his old tricks again, claiming his side remained drastically inferior to their rivals.

But even for Mourinho, this one was a little bizarre.

Of course we have come to expect that Mourinho will deploy a host of weird and wonderful strategies to defend his side, after all this is the guy who hilariously allowed Chelsea’s Scottish masseuse to handle the team-talk for the City game, but that’s nothing compared to his latest mind games.

During Mourinho’s post-match interview the Special One was asked if he felt the Premier League title was a three-horse race between City, Arsenal and Chelsea but the Portuguese’s answer was nothing short of weird.

Mourinho said: “Two horses and a little horse, a nice horse that still needs milk and to learn how to jump. A horse that next season can race.”

He then added that despite dominating Manuel Pellegrini’s side, Chelsea are not serious challengers: “We beat them twice but they are the best team.

“We lost points at home against West Brom, against West Ham, we lost at Stoke, we lost at Newcastle. We are a team in evolution but this is the kind of performance that helps the team to grow up a lot.”

Time will only tell whether this “little horse” will be lifting that big trophy in May.
