Jose Mourinho had a sarcastic response to FIFA’s investigation into Chelsea and the breakdown of Mohamed Salah’s transfer to Fiorentina.
The Egyptian attacker is now on loan at Roma after refusing the chance for a second spell in Florence and instead signing for the Italian capital club.
According to Fiorentina, a clause in the contract which took Salah to the club on a loan deal last summer gave them first option on a summer-long loan this term.
But if Salah refused to make the move then the clause was no longer relevant.
FIFA have today confirmed that they are investigating Chelsea and the player after a complaint was lodged by Fiorentina.
And when asked about the probe, Mourinho hit back at the governing body, saying:
I’m happy that Fifa has time for other things in the middle of such a great weather around them. I’m happy they have time for other things.
Mourinho is obviously referring to the difficult last year at FIFA.
Sepp Blatter is still president of the organisation despite constant pressure to resign and even promised to quit in June, but reports in a Swiss newspaper suggest he may have reneged on that promise.
A corruption investigation into several FIFA officials is still underway.
