Jose Mourinho has insisted there will be no more 'funny headlines' from him and said he would be treating the press with 'no respect', just as they supposedly treat him.

The Chelsea boss seemed in no mood for fun at his press conference ahead of the Blues' game with West Ham United on Saturday.

The Portuguese manager has been involved in two separate incidents with teenagers trying to record him while walking around London - one of the boys even suggested Mourinho had shoved him.

And it appears these events are what has caused Mourinho to take a much more serious approach to his press conferences. 


He said: "You don't get from me good and funny headlines because I'm going to treat your bosses the way they treat me. No respect, and I'm not speaking about football 

"[In] Football I'm ready to upset every kind of critic, even the stupid ones. Private life and stupid things that you bring to light, I don't like it so we go to a different level of professional relation."


It's easy to see why the Portuguese boss is annoyed at the minute. People constantly trying to provoke a reaction from you for internet likes would frustrate the majority of people.

But the 52-year-old does appear to be developing a siege mentality at the Bridge. However, it is a method that has worked well for Mourinho throughout his managerial career.

His methods may not make him popular with rival fans or journalist, but they certainly produce results on the pitch. 

With Mourinho looking for his team to tighten up in all positions, don't be surprised to see them go on a run of ugly 1-0 victories.
