The conspiracy against Jose Mourinho and Chelsea Football Club continued, as he challenged the press to answer two simple questions ‘What’s in the hatch?’, and ‘What do the numbers mean?’.
The famously combative, logical Chelsea manager described himself as a ‘man of reason and science’ and questioned why the referee had so much faith in his own decision not to award Kurt Zouma a penalty against Crystal Palace.
‘This conspiracy against the club..these huge mistakes..we have to go back.. we have to go back Kate!’, Mourinho bellowed at a stunned Gary Lineker who was interviewing him from the Match of the Day sofa.
Reached later for comment Lineker said ‘I didn’t know what to make of it, not at all. At one point I was really concerned for his mental health but my manager told me it was great TV so I let him keep going. Then Jose started scribbling on his palm and pushing a large imaginary wheel. Really quite unusual behaviour, but like most in the business I’ve seen worse.
The less said about Sven ‘Tell me about the Company!’ Eriksson the better.’
