Jose Mourinho ‘congratulates’ refereeing performances all season


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was left unhappy yet again after his side conceded a late penalty to bottom-club Sunderland at Stamford Bridge yesterday which saw his 77-unbeaten home record come to an end.

Despite taking an early lead through Samuel Eto’o, Sunderland struck back thanks to Connor Wickham, who netted twice at the Etihad on Wednesday night as well.

The game then swung in the favour of Gus Poyet’s men when Cesar Azpilicueta brought down Jozy Altidore for a penalty in the 82nd minute.

Former-Chelsea and currently on-loan from Liverpool striker Fabio Borini, stepped up and slotted home the penalty to give The Black Cats a shock 2-1 win.

After the game, Mourinho was clearly frustrated with the refereeing display, and appeared to sarcastically congratulate him for his performance.

“His performance was unbelievable,” Mourinho said of Dean.

“Mike Dean’s performance was unbelievable and when referees have unbelievable performances it’s fair to congratulate them,” he added.
“He came here with one objective, the objective to make a fantastic performance and he did that.
“Congratulations to Mike Riley, because he’s the referees’ boss, and what they are doing during the whole season is fantastic, especially in the last couple of months, especially in matches involving the teams that were in the title race – it’s absolutely fantastic.”
