FOUL MOUTHED MOURINHO
The fallout from last weekends game against Swansea has continued following Mourinho's criticism of Eva Carneiro.
It has now been suggested the Portuguese manager uttered an offensive term in his native tongue towards the head doctor.
It was claimed that the Special One uttered an offensive phrase in Portuguese that roughly translates as "son of a bitch” or “mother******”.
Carneiro and Jon Fearn will not be on the bench for Chelsea's trip to Manchester City on Sunday.
Eden Hazard has received some fantastic praise from Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany.
The Belgian defender said his fellow countryman has the potential to reach the heights of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The Belgian said: “Now let’s be serious. You can’t underestimate the impact he has on Chelsea. And then you’ll expect he would have a dip in his performance level.
"“You can have a many tactical plans as you want, if Eden starts running, it is chaos. He’s at a level where he decides how good his team are. [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo are stats animals. If you look at their talent, you can compare Eden to them. But they score a lot. Unbelievable.”
