Jose Mourinho says a reporter who leaked his comments about Chelsea’s strikers is “a disgrace” to his profession.Mourinho was caught on camera at a commercial event as he told a businessman, “I have a team but no striker.”
The Chelsea manager also joked about Cameroon international Samuel Eto’o’s age. Mourinho did not attempt to defend his comments as he faced the press ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League game at Galatasaray, instead attacking the individual who leaked a private conversation,
I’m not defending what I’m saying. I’m attacking something fundamental in your professional area. That person showed exactly what he doesn’t know about the job.
“From my perspective, the (Eto’o) comment is obviously not a good one, and not one I would do in a serious way or an official way – first of all, because I don’t make fun; secondly, because if there are managers in the world that really defend players, I’m obviously one of them; third, because Samuel Eto’o is Samuel Eto’o.
