FA CUP SEMI FINAL
Liverpool 2 Chelsea 1
Apa kata Jose Mourinho?
Beaten Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho felt his team were very unfortunate to lose to Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final and believed two key decisions by referee Graham Poll turned the game against his team. Mourinho claimed the free-kick that led to John Arne Riise's opening goal should not have been given and also felt John Terry's disallowed goal should have stood.
Mourinho also dismissed suggestions that he and Chelsea should be worried about the threat of Liverpool to their Premiership crown next season. "I can't wish Liverpool all the best for the final but I wish them good luck for the Champions League qualifier at the start of next season," added the Chelsea boss.
"I am not worried at all about Liverpool and they have no chance of winning the Premiership title next season. We are 45 points ahead of Liverpool in the Premiership over the last two seasons and they have only beaten us twice in 10 games."
Memo: Bila kalah, memang begitulah selalunya komennya. Payah menerima kekalahan. Bersalam pun tak mahu. Wang tidak boleh membeli segalanya, Jose!
Apa pula komen Rafa Benitez?
And on Mourinho's comments Liverpool's manager said: 'I have heard the same things before the Champions League games. We are in the final of the FA Cup and I must give credit to players and not talk about the other team.'
Memo: Great job, Rafa!
