Southampton ace Ryan Bertrand trolled his former boss Jose Mourinho on Twitter last night after watching his side suffer a defeat at the hands of top four rivals Liverpool. 

Bertrand, who was suspended for the clash at the St Mary's, tweeted 'Minute 4' after teammate Filip Djuricic was denied an early penalty against the Merseyside outfit. 

Clearly, then, Bertrand recognised the fourth minute as a game changing moment as the Saints failed to move back into the Champions League places. 

It was only the previous day, of course, that Jose Mourinho referenced four minutes of the game that changed things as the Blues were held against strugglers Burnley at Stamford Bridge. 

Speaking to BBC Sport, Mourinho said: "There are four moments of the game where you can write the story. Minutes 30, 33, 43 and 69. Don't ask me more questions.

"I can't go through the incidents. I am punished when I refer to them."

Icardi demands £100,000-a-week Inter contract

The London Evening Standard have claimed that Chelsea striker target Mauro Icardi is demanding as much as £100,000-a-week to stay at Inter Milan. 

The forward, who has enjoyed a fine season in the Serie A, looks set for a bright future in the game, but it remains to be seen as to whether Blues chief Jose Mourinho steps up his interest in him anytime soon. 

Falcao was needed at Chelsea 

Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim has surprisingly claimed that Manchester United forward Radamel Falcao was needed more at some of their English rivals.

In fact, Jardim has suggested that Falcao would have been better off moving to either of Chelsea, Manchester City or Liverpool.

He told The Sun: “In England other teams wanted him. But I didn’t think United would be the ones taking him as they had Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

“Maybe they did not need him. It’s my opinion but not my decision to make.”

“I think other clubs needed him more, such as Chelsea, Manchester City or Liverpool"

Ultimately, though, Chelsea added to their front line this past summer as they purchased the likes of Diego Costa and Loic Remy. Falcao, meanwhile, has endured a tricky period on English soil, having failed to prove his credentials in Manchester.
