Jose Mourinho believed UEFA and the Football Association were out to ‘f**k us’ during his time at Chelsea, according to a new biography.
A new book by Rob Beasley, Jose Mourinho: Up close and personal, which is being serialised by The Daily Mail, has given an insight into Mourinho’s anger behind UEFA’s decision to allow Thibaut Courtois to play against Chelsea for Atletico Madrid, and an FA fine of £8,000 for being sent off in the defeat to Aston Villa in 2014.
Courtois, who was on loan at Atletico during the 2013-14 campaign, was permitted to feature against his parent club in the Champions League semi-final.
Beasley wrote in his book: ‘Mourinho raged to me: ‘Courtois to play is a joke but the biggest joke is (we) play Liverpool on the Sunday.
‘It is a disgrace that we play Sunday. We play for Chelsea and also for England. It is a disgrace.
‘They hide behind walls and f**k us.
‘Who are they? Do they have a name and a face? It is amazing.’
‘Then he turned on his old enemies, the FA, and their latest punishment: ‘I don’t accept the decision. I don’t pay.
‘I fight the decision and I kill the guys there.
‘They want to f**k me and they do.
‘Old guys, don’t have a clue about football. I told them that they are a disgrace.’
