Jose Mourinho defends ‘good friend and good man’ Alan Pardew over headbutt furore

Perhaps it shouldn’t be such a surprise to see that Jose Mourinho has defended Alan Pardew over his spot of bother last week- a headbutt is small beer compared to an eye gouge, after all, but then taking his friendship with Pards into consideration, it’s understandable.

Mourinho reveals that Pardew is a good friend and a good man, and that he’ll learn from his mistake; while also defending against any notion that managers should remain seated during games, saying it’s important to be able to move around the technical area.
