‘FAKE’: Jose Mourinho doesn’t believe in Manchester City 3 – Chelsea 0 (Video)

‘Special One’, ‘Not of the bottle’, ‘Campaign’, Zero Tituli’; throughout his managerial career, Jose Mourinho has decorated the football lexicon with his own quirky language, and he added a new phrase to his dictionary after the defeat to Man City today.

Convinced that Chelsea were the dominant team in the second half, and that City were holding out for the 1-0 win, Mourinho described the 3-0 result as ‘fake’.

Of course, what he means to say is that the result flattered City, and that 3-0 was not at all an accurate reflection of the overall game, without realizing that using the word ‘fake’ doesn’t quite work in this context in English (while it possibly does in Portuguese/Spanish).
