Mourinho: I cannot speak about referees

Jose Mourinho believes he is on an “imaginary list” of coaches who cannot talk about referees.

Mourinho was in spiky mood at his news conference ahead of Saturday’s trip to Newcastle, claiming managers are treated differently by the Football Association (FA).

He said: “In the rule book it says that some managers can speak about the referee before the game or after the game and others cannot. Then there is a list and I come on the list where I get punished if I talk about the referee.

“It’s an imaginary list but clearly [I am on it].

Mourinho also continued his war of words with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, which has rumbled since the sides’ controversial clash last Saturday.

When asked about the pressure on Steve McClaren, Mourinho’s opposite number on Saturday, the Portuguese replied: “In this country only one manager is not under pressure.

“Everyone else is under pressure. We cannot be below expectations. I have sympathy for them and I am sure they have sympathy with me.

“There is one who is off the list but good for him. He can speak about referees, can push in the technical area, can cry before the game, can lose games. Good for him.”
