Hypocrite of the Week - Jose Mourinho

Ssh. I'm a hypocrite. Sunday, 6th February, 2006:

In a match between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea winger Arjen Robben dramatically falls to the floor holding his face claiming he has been struck by Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina. Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez blasts the player alleging gamesmanship:

"He has dived, it is so clear. I don't understand why you can kick everyone in a game, then you touch one player and you are sent off.

"What kind of professional can you be against another professional if you leave the other player not playing for three games?"

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho refuses to comment on Benitez's claims:

"I am not interested in what Benitez has said."

"Why should I comment on Rafa's words. He can say what he wants but sometimes we say things without thinking, especially after we lose."

Wednesday, 22nd February, 2006:

In a match between Chelsea and Barcelona at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea player Asier Del Horno gets a red card - Mourinho accuses Barcelona winger Lionel Messi of trying to get Del Horno sent off:

"How do you say cheating in Catalan"?

"Can Messi be suspended for acting? Barcelona is a cultural city with many great theatres and this boy has learned very well. He's learned play-acting."

Come on, Jose. He's not a patch on Arjen Robben! In fact, forget all the speculation that Brokeback Mountain will clean up at the Oscars, personally I'm backing Arjen to bag an award for his Oscar-winning performance against the scousers!

Mourinho, you sir are a hypocrite. I suggest you consider getting involved with politics in Ireland's north when you leave Chelsea.

You would fit in rather well!
