Is this Jose Mourinho’s ostrich moment?
In scenes reminiscent of Nigel Pearson’s infamous “you are an ostrich” press conference last season, the Chelsea boss turned on a reporter who suggested Diego Costa could have been sent off during their 2-0 win over Arsenal yesterday and accused him of – horror of horrors – having played badminton as a child.
We’re not 100% sure what’s wrong with playing badminton – we used to have the odd game when we were young and it was quite fun.
Not that we’d admit that to Jose, obviously.
Either way, it’s the most glorious managerial non sequitur since this…
