News of the day – Jose Mourinho is sad becuase Arsenal lost last night
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has expressed his sadness over the poor performances of the English in the opening week games of the UEFA Champions League.
Manchester United was shocked by PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night after the Dutch side went past United 2-1. Manchester City on the same day lost to last season’s runner-up side Juventus 2-1 after going ahead in the game.
Last night two more Premier League sides Arsenal and Chelsea had played their respective matches. While Chelsea hammered 4 goals in their match, Arsenal succumbed to a shock 1-2 defeat against European minnows Dinamo Zagreb.
While the entire football world has been criticising the English teams for their poor show at Europe, Chelsea Mourinho felt that he does not want the English sides to fair poorly at such a big stage. It will hamper the reputation of English football. Mourinho said even though he wants his league rivals to lose in the Premier League, he would expect them to win at Europe.
Jose Mourinho was quoted saying: “I think it is sad. I think it is bad. I’m not happy with that.
“I want Arsenal, Man City and Man Utd to lose in the Premier League. I don’t want them to lose in the Champions League. It is not good for us.
“Season after season, it is difficult for English teams to be successful and start the group phase where you can make 12 points and not three.
“It is bad news for English football.”
English teams for long has not performed properly since Chelsea’s famous in the 2012-12 season. Last season all the English Premier League sides were ousted within the round of 16.
The English teams do not look convincing enough at the big stage and it looks unlikely that they would create any problem for the Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in a title challenge.
