Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insisted that referee Jon Moss was '****ing soft' during his half-time altercation with the match official.
According to the Daily Mail, the Blues boss referred to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger when hitting out at the referee as he reportedly stated: ‘Wenger was right — you are ****ing soft.’
The report claims that Mourinho's comments could be referring to when Moss failed to punish Wenger after the Gunners chief shoved the official at Stamford Bridge in October 2014.

In fact, the same report goes on to claim that the self-proclaimed 'Special One' now faces the threat of a stadium ban after refusing to leave the referee's room during the confrontation. Mourinho had to watch on from the stands in the second half at Upton Park as his side suffered their fifth Premier League defeat of the season against high-flying West Ham United.
The FA have already charged Mourinho and assistant Silvino Louro, who was dismissed in the first half in east London. The Mail suggests that Mourinho could now be asked to take an anger management course as his struggles continue at Stamford Bridge.
The controversy surrounding Mourinho really isn't helping his players in their pursuit of redemption this season. It's been a torrid campaign for the Premier League champions, who are showing no signs of recovery.
Ultimately, the likes of Diego Costa, Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Co. have all failed to produce the goods week in, week out.
With the Blues sitting in 15th position in the Premier League, Mourinho's side must find some momentum sooner rather than later.
