Garry Monk: Jose Mourinho Didn’t Shake Hands With Me Last Game.. I Hope He Does This Time

Garry Monk has revealed Jose Mourinho failed to shake his hand after Chelsea‘s 1-0 win over Swansea last April.

But he doesn’t see any reason why they won’t share the friendly gesture after this weekend’s clash at Stamford Bridge.

The Swans boss wasn’t happy with the way the Chelsea bench reacted to a foul by Chico Flores which eventually saw the former defender dismissed.

Yet the unsavoury situation doesn’t change Monk’s opinion of Mourinho.

He said:

He didn’t shake hands with me after the last game, but I am probably not the only one and it’s not a big deal.

“I like to shake hands and finish things well at the end of a game, and of course I will shake his hand this weekend.

“He is a top manager, someone who is hugely respected in football.

“He has won titles at the highest level and is in the top bracket – he has legendary status as a manager.

“He is winning things on a regular basis and he has managed some of the top clubs in Europe. He is someone for someone like me to look up to.”
