Jose Mourinho has said he is treated worse than other Premier League managers when it comes to being disciplined for contact behavior.
The Tottenham manager was speaking ahead of today’s game against Liverpool, a ‘rematch’ of last month’s game that saw the Reds come out with a 2-1 win.
After that match, Mourinho ‘hit’ his counterpart Jurgen Klopp, saying he would be ruled out if he behaved in the same way as the Liverpool manager did.
Mourinho went on to suggest he had a double standard in the game before today’s match, insisting that other managers are treated better than him.
“What I can say is when I did not behave well and paid the price,” Mourinho initially told a news conference.
“And I paid the price in two ways: one was to watch matches on TV in the locker room and another price was the fine and I think, for some of the other managers, it does not happen the same. “It does not happen the same with them.”
“But if the judge and the fourth official are there to do that job, I just hope they do that job and act as they should,” Special One concluded. / Telegraphy /
