Jose Mourinho says his Chelsea side let Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta ‘pass the ball from side to side’ [Video]
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho gave his post match interview following the 0-0 draw with Arsenal and gave some information regarding his tactics at the Emirates.
After a very dull game Mourinho explained that “It’s very important not to lose, because then we’d be 5 points behind the leader. We tried to win, but we’re not unhappy.”
The Chelsea boss explained that he let Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta have time on the ball, knowing he would only pass it sideways.
A harsh criticism of the Spanish central midfielder or just a clever tactical ploy? Probably both.
