‘Mourinho behaves like a petulant baby!’
The former Blackburn Rovers and Celtic player made his frustrations with the Portuguese boss clear, criticising his behaviour
The Portuguese manager has become increasingly critical in his media appearances and received a stadium ban for Saturday’s match after launching a tirade at a referee.
And Sutton, who played for Chelsea as well as Blackburn Rovers and Celtic, is tired of Mourinho’s histrionics.
“I’ve always been a fan of Mourinho up until this season – I think he’s been charismatic, charming, brilliant for the Premier League,” he said on BBC Radio 5 Live.
“But his behaviour in recent times – he has behaved like a petulant, big baby.
The former Chelsea striker was also critical of Mourinho’s attitude following the defeat to Slaven Bilic’s West Ham, suggesting that the manager had nothing to complain about with regards to Cesc Fabregas’ disallowed strike and Nemanja Matic’s dismissal.
“i can understand his frustration, we all can, because the team aren’t playing well but the bottom line is that at West Ham he was wrong.
“If he was factually right he would be okay but he was wrong. The goal was offisde. Matic should have gone and he shouldn’t have any complaints. And to argue those points is utterly ridiculous.”
