Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has lashed out at former Liverpool pair Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness over their recent criticism of the Blues’ Champions League exit.
Carragher called Chelsea’s away goal defeat at the hands of Paris Saint Germain ‘disgraceful’, while Souness used the word ‘pathetic’ in his analysis. This was much to the displeasure of the Stamford Bridge coach, who went as far as to question the pair’s eating habits.
Mourinho, who was quoted by the Daily Star, said: “The world is a bit strange. Maybe because of diet and maybe the quality of the products we are eating, memories are getting shorter.
“Because, you know, when Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness speak about it, it’s because they are having a problem for sure. Jamie stopped playing a couple of years ago and, in two years, he forget everything he did on the pitch.
“Mr Souness also, but he stopped playing a long times ago. I coached Benfica, I know a lot about him, so much about him. But I’ve a certain kind of education, not just in football but in life, and I prefer to laugh. Envy is the biggest tribute that the shadows do to the man. It’s about life.”
