The Portuguese made the analogy after his side suffered their first defeat of the campaign against the North East side. The coach has been accused of “parking the bus” in with his sides in the past.
The Blues manager was unhappy with the physical approach of his opponents, as well as the apparent slowness of the ball boys to get the ball on to the pitch in injury time.
After the match, a reporter asked the 51-year-old whether he would do something similar to bring his side victory. He denied that he would, and made the bizarre analogy about a cow.
“No. With anything? You may as well put a cow in the middle of the pitch. And then stop the game because there was a cow.You cannot do just anything in football,” claimed the Chelsea boss.
He added, “You have to defend with your 10 men, put the 10 men on the goal line, park the bus, but football needs a ball. Not two or zero. Do what you can to win but not everything. Sometimes there were zero balls and that cuts the dynamic of the team who is trying to win the game.”
The Stamford Bridge outfit will be hoping to bounce back from the loss in their next Premier League match against Hull City. They also have a Champions League dead rubber against Sporting Lisbon before that on Wednesday. They are expected to rotate heavily for that match.
