Jose Mourinho widely criticised for Chelsea’s defensive tactics at Atletico Madrid [Best tweets]
- Updated: April 22, 2014
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho got exactly what he wanted at the Vicente Calderon in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final, drawing 0-0 with Atletico Madrid.
Jose Mourinho’s side had an obvious gameplan widely known in the football world as ‘parking the bus’.
Having criticised Sam Allardyce earlier this season for his ’19th century football’, it was inevitable Mourinho would be lambasted for his tactics.
Some of the best tweets can be seen below.
I wonder if Sam Allardyce is watching tonight with a smile on his face?

If Cech hadn't gone off injured Mourinho would've put both keepers on by now.

It always amazes me when words like 'Brave' are used to describe a defensive display by Mourinho's Chelsea It's pure cowardice.

Dear journos: If Mourinho ever complains about defensive teams in an interview again, feel free to blow a raspberry in his face.
