Richard Keys sent an extraordinary tweet after Jose Mourinho leaves press conference early

A lot has been written about Jose Mourinho in the past few months.

The Portuguese manager has dominated the headlines: Whether it has been for his complaints about transfers or his team’s performance on the pitch.

And he hit the headlines once again on Friday afternoon during his press conference.

Mourinho was expected to answer a number of questions before his side’s game against Tottenham on Monday night.

But Mourinho clearly didn’t want to be there from the outset. He arrived half-an-hour early for his press conference, and ended up speaking to the media for just four minutes and 13 seconds.

He answered 13 questions in that time frame before walking out.

That’s fair enough. Mourinho has had to contend with criticism from the media for some time and has clearly grown tired of their questions in recent times.

But one man that was not happy with Mourinho’s actions was BeIN Sports presenter, Richard Keys.

In fact, it can be said that Keys was fuming.

Keys took to Twitter to address Mourinho’s press conference, where he called him a ‘disgrace’ and an ‘enemy to football’.

“How much lower can Mourinho drag the good name of Manchester United?” He wrote.

“That press conference today was a disgrace. Ramon Calderon X-President of Real called him ‘an enemy of football’. He was right.”

Wow. Keys has not held back there.

It is a massive overreaction to Mourinho’s press conference, though.

Why is he an ‘enemy to football’ for turning up to his media duties early, and then leaving once he had answered all the questions he wanted to?

That was a view shared by many, with many tearing into Keys for his unnecessary tweet.

Was Mourinho right to walk out of the press conference early? Or do you agree with Keys? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
