Jose Mourinho set to end media silence

Jose Mourinho is set to end his media snub today by doing his press conference at the club’s training ground in Cobham, reports the Express.

The Special One cancelled his weekly press briefing last week before Chelsea’s clash against Premier League title rivals Manchester City following his £25,000 fine for his comments about a ‘campaign’ against his side.


His silence came after Chelsea’s star striker Diego Costa was handed a three-match ban for a stamp on Liverpool’s Emre Can in the League Cup semi-final last week. There was also an investigation into the Spaniard's clash with Martin Skrtel but the FA decided there was no issue. 

Questions will inevitably be asked about Costa’s ban, which could spark the Chelsea boss creating a fiery press conference - something we have become accustomed to with Mourinho. 

'A scandal'

It is not the first time Mourinho has been charged for his discipline this season with the 52-year-old receiving a fine for his comments after the Southampton clash in December claiming the decisions going against Chelsea were ‘a scandal’.

Mourinho’s side face Aston Villa on Saturday and currently sit five points clear of Manchester City with many believing the title race is all but wrapped up despite there being a fairly long way to go. 

The London side will be without Costa who will be serving the second match of his ban, but Chelsea's firepower should still be far too much for Villa and a routine victory seems inevitable.
