Jose Mourinho’s official biographer speaks out after Uefa charge

It is more than five years since Jose Mourinho labelled Arsene Wenger a voyeur. But it would appear that old habits die hard.

Following the Uefa disciplinary charge for Real Madrid over Mourinho’s instructions for his players to deliberately get themselves sent-off, there is one man who dominates the footballing world’s commentary on the episode. You guessed it.

The Arsenal manager said: “There should be sanctions. I do not want to see that. It’s a pity to see it from a big game. It gives a bad image.

“I respect Real Madrid for their quality and for what they are doing, but whether it’s them or somebody else, you don’t want to see that on the football pitch.

“You want to respect people who pay money to watch a game. What do they want? To watch a football game, not to watch these kind of things. You don’t want to accept that. When you see how it looks on television, it is the best demonstration to never do it again because, frankly, it looks horrible.

“I’m not saying I’m better than Jose Mourinho or more of an example than him. I just think it doesn’t look good.”

Not even through a telescope?
