Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho admits he does not know if he will watch Chelsea’s clash with Stoke City after his appeal to strike out the FA’s stadium ban handed him was rejected.
Mourinho saw his appeal against a stadium suspension relating to comments made to the media rejected on Thursday, and he insists he “already knows the result” of a potential second appeal after being punished for his behaviour during the club’s 2-1 loss to West Ham.
Although the Blues boss will travel with the side to the Britannia Stadium, he would not be allowed into the stadium. This means that he will leave the team in the hands of his assistants and he has claimed he has made no plans as to where he will watch the match.
“I have no plans, maybe I sit in street corner with my iPad, I don’t know,” he told reporters.
“If I cannot contact with the game maybe I don’t even watch the game. I can’t contact with the game so what’s the point? Live score, results, maybe.”
Mourinho, though, says the Blues are well-prepared for every eventuality, with the Portuguese having thoroughly briefed his backroom team.
“If the first 10 minutes we are playing with seven men they are not prepared for that, they have to decide themselves. The game isn’t predictable, you don’t know the direction but we can try to reduce that and that we did,” he added.
“Revenge for what? What’s the problem? Why? We played a good game, people were nice to us, our supporters were fantastic, no problems between supporters, a great football match, a good referee, a good show for everyone,” he added.
“One team scores one more penalty, one team left happy, one team left unhappy, everything was normal, revenge for what?”
