Stadium ban frustrates Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho

first_img “Maybe I watch a movie. I don’t know,” he said. “For me, it’s very similar to going to a cinema and somebody tells me ‘you are not allowed to come in’. “Or I go to a shop to buy a pair of shoes and somebody tells me ‘you cannot come into the shop to buy a pair of shoes’. “So tomorrow I want to go to a football match, Stoke against Chelsea, and if I try to do that somebody will stop me. “I want to go to Stoke-Chelsea with my son and, at the door of the stadium, somebody says: ‘You kid, you can come in. You father, you go home’. That’s the basic picture. “On top of it, I am going to that stadium to work, and people says ‘you cannot come here to do your work’. “Even if I buy a ticket people will stop me (coming in). There is no chance.” Mourinho must stay away from the Britannia Stadium following his half-time dismissal at West Ham last month. The Blues boss “admitted a Football Association charge of misconduct regarding his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area” at Upton Park and was fined £40,000 alongside the stadium ban. The FA released its reasons on Friday, with referee Jonathan Moss saying Mourinho called him “f****** weak”. “My punishment, the dimension of my punishment, the stadium ban that stays suspended, obviously affects everything,” said Mourinho, who on Thursday lost a separate appeal against a suspended one-match stadium ban. “My answers (to the media), obviously, are going to be different. “The way I participate with the game, obviously, is going to be different. “I had a game a few days ago where I stood for 90 minutes on my side. The other manager (Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp) was jumping like Michael Jordan and nothing happened. “So, I know that for me everything is different. It’s changed a lot. “I think the message that the power (the FA) want to give me, the message is more than clear.” Mourinho is frustrated he is barred from doing his job as he says he is uncertain how he will follow the game, although it is inconceivable he will not watch the televised contest. Press Association Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his stadium ban changes everything and compared his banishment from Stoke’s Britannia Stadium with being prevented from entering a cinema to watch a film. last_img read more
