Jose Mourinho was unmoved by criticism from former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez…
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has laughed off references made my former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez to the Blues’ tactics at Anfield last season.
Reports on Goal.com quotes Mourinho, who has hit back Suarez’s comments in his new autobiography, saying that he would never write “a book to tell s**t and to criticise people and to speak negative things”.
During ‘Crossing the Line’, Suarez mentions questioning an unnamed Blues player over the visitors’ perceived time-wasting from the start of last season’s encounter at Anfield. Chelsea won the game 2-0, all but ending Liverpool’s titles hopes.
Upon being questioned, the player supposedly replied: “What do you want me to do? If [Mourinho] makes us play like this, I have to play like this. What else can I do? If I don’t, I won’t play. What would you do?”
“Another book,” a shrugging Mourinho remarked to reporters. “Books … Do you read these books? I don’t. At 51, I might have enough story to write one but when you are 25? Do you write a book about when you were a kid? I don’t think I will [do a book].
“I have an invitation to do a picture book, just with 100 photographs I’d choose of my career, and I’d just make a little comment on every picture. A memory book but not a book to tell s**t and to criticise people and to speak negative things about people who belong to my career.”
Chelsea return to Anfield on Saturday as unbeaten Premier League leaders and Mourinho expects Liverpool to attack his side from the outset again as they look to put an end to their bad form.
