The Portuguese dished out the silent treatment to his under-performing Chelsea players after their shock defeat to League One Bradford.
Chelsea gaffer was “ashamed” after watching the Blues go from 2-0 up to lose 4-2 and exit the FA Cup in an “unacceptable” performance which he described as a “disgrace”. He left his players to stew afterwards, saying “not a word”.The former Real Madrid boss made nine changes for the clash, which fell between the two legs of their Capital One Cup semi-final tie with Liverpool, with the second leg taking place on Tuesday night.
He had relied largely upon a tried-and-trusted starting line-up this season for the Premier League leaders. And he hinted at a frustration with the depth of his squad after the likes of Didier Drogba, Loic Remy, Mohamed Salah and John Obi Mikel failed to impress.
“I don’t make many changes. I try to keep stability in the team. Maybe now you can understand a bit better why.” said Mourinho. “But I don’t want to speak too much about it. This is our squad, I trust them and let’s move on.” he added.
