Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been blasted for his 'pathetic' comments regarding the sale of David Luiz to Paris Saint Germain this summer.

Canal+ journalist Pierre Menes tweeted to his 625,000 followers that it is a 'speciality of Jose Mourinho to sh*t on the players who leave [Chelsea].'

Luiz was sold to PSG for €50m earlier this summer, and Mourinho has since been less than complementary about the Brazilian following his departure.

Mourinho's comments

As reported by French newspaper Le 10 Sport, Mourinho said: "He was not a regular first choice for us last season - especially not as a central defender.

"He gave us some service in the middle [of midfield]. He is a physical guy who gave us important things, especially in the Champions League when Nemanja Matic could not play. Matic can play next season so we do not need David."

The central defender came in for criticism from several high profile pundits in England after a number of inconsistent displays at the heart of the Chelsea defence since his move for Benfica.

Gary Neville described Luiz as a 'Playstation player' after one of his more adventurous forays into the opposition half while Alan Hansen was not a massive fan on BBC's Match of the Day.

Rafa Benitez, during his brief stint as interim boss, was the first to deploy Luiz in the holding midfield position. And while it was moderately successful, Luiz has always viewed himself as a centre-half.

Jose Mourinho clearly didn't agree, although Menes was not happy with the Chelsea boss's comments.

The tweet

His full tweet regarding Mourinho said: "Specialty Mourinho: Sh*t on players who leave. Pathetic."

Luiz will link up with PSG after his summer break following the World Cup in Brazil. The defender captained his country during their humiliating 7-1 semi-final defeat to eventual winners Germany.

He will resume his partnership with international teammate Thiago Silva at the Parc des Princes.
