Video: Jose Mourinho labels Chelsea's performance against Bradford 'disgraceful'
Mourinho calls it a 'disgraceful' effort from Chelsea
Jose Mourinho was understandably disappointed with Chelsea’s performance after losing 4-2 to Bradford at home. The Portuguese manager believes it is unacceptable for his side to lose against a League One outfit. While Mourinho decided to go with a weakened side for the FA Cup tie, it still had enough quality on paper to beat their opponent on the night.
“I feel happy for Bradford,” Mourinho said. “In my bad feelings with the game and with the result, I can find space to feel happy for them. But on the other hand, I feel ashamed.
“The players should feel exactly the same as I feel. This is the beauty of football, of the FA Cup. In not many sports is it possible that the best team loses to a team with completely different potential. But this is just one part of my feelings. I repeat the words that I used [on Friday] in the press conference: ‘If we lose, it’s a disgrace’.
