Jose Mourinho apologises to Chelsea fans with comment on Instagram

Football News

Jose Mourinho’s long love affair with Chelsea ended the moment he was sacked by Roman Abramovich last December.

The Portuguese coach, now the manager of Manchester United, refused to sign a Chelsea fans’ shirt while on the Red Devils’ pre-season tour of China earlier this summer and has now managed to offend members of the Blues’ faithful on Instagram.

Mourinho’s son, Jose Mario Mourinho, plays in goal for Fulham’s Under-18 side and celebrated a 2-1 victory over Chelsea on the photo-sharing app.

“Buzzin about today!” Mourinho Jr. tweeted. “Beat Chelsea 2-1, played second half, clean sheet, very proud, made a couple of great saves! #COYW”.

Needless to say, this angered some thin-skinned Chelsea fans, who responded by leaving some unsavoury messages in the comments.

Mourinho's comments that angered Chelsea fans

Like any father, Mourinho wanted to defend his son - but he created a stir by posting two comments in the replies.

“Dont loose [sic] time with 🐫🐪“ the United boss posted.

He then added: “cfc 1 ffc 2 🐪🐫“.

As you can guess, this didn’t go down particularly well with the Chelsea supporters.

Mourinho's apology

But the 53-year-old, who’ll probably think twice before leaving comments on his son’s Instagram post in future, has now apologised.

“I was missed [sic] understood,” Mourinho added in a third comment left on the Instagram photo. “The images were to one person in particularly.

“I never intended to hit any Chelsea fans.

“For all the support they will always be in my heart...and when i say always i say always.

“🐪🐫are the ones with stupid coments [sic] not the cfc fans.

“I will always respect them.”

Decent start for Mourinho at United

Mourinho presumably left the last comment while in a good mood following United’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this afternoon.

The Red Devils’ currently occupy pole position in the Premier League table thanks to goals from Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and summer signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Next up for United are Southampton at Old Trafford on Friday night.

A night which should mark the second United debut of a certain Paul Pogba, who became the most expensive footballer ever last week.

Will Jose Mourinho be cheered or booed when he returns to Stamford Bridge with United this season? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
