Jose Mourinho taunted by West Ham players at half-time

Football News

Jose Mourinho was making headlines again for all the wrong reasons as his Chelsea side lost 2-1 to West Ham United on Saturday.

The game saw Silvino Louro, Mourinho's assistant first-team coach, sent to the stands in the first half before the Chelsea boss followed suit at half-time after things got heated in the tunnel.

The Blues manager has been in trouble with the FA recently and was fined £50,000 for his comments following the 3-1 defeat to Southampton. He was also given a one-game suspended stadium ban which is likely to be invoked after his outburst.

According to the Mirror, Mourinho and referee Jon Moss had history prior to the game at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday.

The West Ham players were reportedly aware that Moss and the Chelsea boss had been bickering since kick-off. 

And as Mourinho tried to get to Moss during the interval it has been reported that Hammers players said to him: “Don’t hang around there - it’ll cost you another £50,000.”


The pressure is well and truly on Mourinho to change Chelsea's fortunes this season and, in turn, prove he can commit to a club for longer than a three-year period.

Reports have suggested Roman Abramovich could wield the axe if the Blues were to lose at home to Liverpool at the weekend.

Another defeat would take their league tally to six this season and nobody could really be surprised if Mourinho were to get the boot. 

The Chelsea managerial merry-go-round could be moving once again.
