Don’t Ask Me Questions About Champions League, Ask Wenger And Pellegrini – Mourinho

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, has admitted that it is the players that pay the fines, if the club is charged for harassing a match official.

The Portuguese manager was speaking at his Friday press conference, ahead of Southampton’s visit this Sunday.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, was sent off by referee Bjorn Kuipers, after nine Chelsea players surrounded him, following the Swede’s tackle on Oscar.

“If the players surround referee we are charged and we have to pay a fine,” Mourinho said.

“If we do that the players pay the fine. We have eight or nine months and we were charged once and we paid for that. Go to the Premier League and see how many were charged. We were charged once.

“I had a meeting with the players, but I am working for the future. I don’t have to share with you. It was good and interactive. If you want to speak Champions League, you go to (Arsene) Wenger or (Manuel) Pellegrino (Pellegrini), they have one match to play.

“If you want to speak Champions League, speak with them. We lost zero matches – we were not good enough to make the result we needed. We are out of the Champions League, so we speak about it next season. We need to finish in the top four.

 “Only the champion is a head of the group, so we cannot be protected by the co-efficient next season.”
