Piers Morgan decided to jump all over Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho following the West London sides’ FA Cup exit at the hands of Manchester City.
Morgan publicly supported Mourinho’s ‘Wenger’s a specialist in failure’ comments yesterday but couldn’t resist sticking the knife in as Chelsea’s Wembley dream fell apart.
Morgan agreed with Mourinho’s assessment that eight years without a piece of silverware should be considered a failure in a press conference attack which will now become synonymous with the Portuguese coach’s career.
Chelsea produced a poor display at Manchester City which prompted Morgan to put the shoe on the other foot, twisting the supportive comments about Mourinho yesterday into something more negative this evening.
Morgan also decided to criticise Eden Hazard, one of the most impressive performers for the Blues in recent weeks, branding the Belgian an over-rated player.
Chelsea fans shouldn’t get too upset or angry from Morgan’s jibes because the Blues remain in a great position to win the Premier League and have a manager experienced in the Champions League having won the competition with two different clubs.
There were quite a few Tweets from Morgan that we could have included but we’ve done our best to pick out the best ones.
