Jose Mourinho VS Diego Costa Fall Out Confirmed By Mourinho Himself

The pressure on the Chelsea team and their handler was failed to be kept under during the Champions League game against Maccabi Tel Aviv on Tuesday evening as Spain international, Diego Costa, and Mourinho were involved in an open spat during the first half of the game.

With Chelsea leading with just a goal, all 3 points weren’t guaranteed, and the striker failed to make a needed move on the ball at a moment during the game, angering the hot tempered Portuguese handler who openly rebuked the Spaniard. Not one to only stand up to opposition defenders, the equally temperamental forward replied the coach and both were close to blows but for Terry’s intervention.

After the post-match conference, Mourinho was quick to quell the matter, revealing that despite the public outrage from both parties, they made up in the dressing room during the break with cuddles and hugs and everything has since returned to normal.

Jose had hinted at an early removal of the former Atletico Madrid striker immediately after the spat as he sent backup striker Loic Remy to warm up. But he opted against withdrawing the 27 year-old who went on to finish the whole game without a goal to his name. “I wanted him to do a certain movement that he didn’t,” he explained of the striker, who ended a six-match scoreless run against Norwich at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. “I was disappointed. I reacted. He reacted too. At half-time in the dressing room – a few kisses and a few cuddles.”

Chelsea trounced the Israeli giants 4 goals to 0 as they got 3 goals in the closing stages of the game that was pretty much one-sided. Gary Cahill had handed Chelsea the lead in the first half, while a Willian free kick, his 4th dead ball goal in Europe this season and 2 headers from Oscar and Kurt Zouma completed the demolition. The win saw Chelsea move up to top of the group ahead of Porto with goals’ difference. Both clubs are on 10 points after 5 games, and Chelsea will only need a draw to guarantee qualification for the next rounds.
