Chelsea suffers a major upset at home in FA Cup – Mourinho addresses
FA Cup – 4th round Chelsea 2-4 Bradford
Mourihno judges his team’s performance unacceptable:
‘I find among my bad feelings about the game and the result, space to feel happy for Bradford.’
‘But I also feel ashamed and the players should feel exactly the same as I feel. By one side this is the beauty of football, because in not many sports is it possible for the best players to lose against a team or players with completely different potential.
‘By another side this is the beauty of the FA Cup because it happens in this more than in other countries, but this is only one part of my feelings and analysis. For the other part I repeat the words I used yesterday in the case that we lose, that it is a disgrace – a sports disgrace.’
‘I know that in the history of this competition this happens to every team now and again. For me it is the first time, for Chelsea it doesn’t happen a lot, and it is unacceptable to lose against a team from a lower league.
‘I don’t know what the media are going to do in relation to their work but if I was them I would be very critical of Chelsea, the Chelsea manager and the Chelsea players but not just that, because Bradford don’t deserve that we forgot them and just focus on the negative Chelsea. We should also focus on them because they deserve it after such an impressive result.’
‘I always said that I don’t choose competitions and we go match after match. The most important competition now is the Capital One Cup because it is the next game.
