It’s the Chelsea double that’s had us all contemplating switching to rugby for the next few months, and Football Burp understands that it has vindicated José Mourinho’s season-long surliness.
MORE CHELSEA TITLE DRAMA:
The Blues boss, notoriously sullen, allowed the merest hint of a smile to permeate his increasingly Jack-Dee-like features in the immediate aftermath of yesterday’s 2-0 Capital One Cup final victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
It followed swiftly on the heels of Chelsea being confirmed as Premier League champions – you know, virtually – when Manchester City lost 2-1 at Liverpool.
But when asked whether he’d been spending all season indulging in media-based mind games, and if so does he now feel justified in doing so, Mourinho shrugged and scowled.
He said: “No. No, I do not think like this. It is you who thinks these things.
“Am I happy to win the Capital One Cup? I would say no. How can you have a capital one? This you will need to explain to me.
“A capital J I can understand, or a capital M – these I have embroidered into my official club tracksuit.
“But a capital one? No. No, I do not see it this way.”
We’re sure José loves his Chelsea double really.
