‘Chelsea Fans Lacked Class And Respect Towards Number One Mourinho’
In an unfamiliar and unheard of manner, some sections of the crowd were very animated and disrespectful of Mourinho.
Mourinho was targeted by chants of ‘Judas’ to which he responded by holding three fingers up to represent the league titles he won for Chelsea.
Jose further went on and declared that as long as some other manager wins four titles for the Blues, he will be their greatest boss in history.
Wilkins, who was a Chelsea player and an assistant manager – while also a former Red Devils star said that the ‘Special One’ was treated unfairly.
“I just wish our Chelsea supporters, and I’m a Chelsea supporter, showed a little bit more class to Jose Mourinho,” Wilkins said.
“People will naturally be thinking: ‘Hang on a second he was demonstrating stuff on the touchline against Chelsea’. Well, yes he was, but now he is employed by Manchester United.”
“Chelsea relieved him of his post. If we actually remember what he has done for our club, and I say our club because I have been a Chelsea man since I was 10 and a half, he has worked miracles there.”
“I think they [Chelsea fans] do [think he is still number one] if they are thinking about it logically and sensibly.”
“There is no one that that can touch him at the moment. Jose will be number one until somebody wins as many trophies as Jose.”
Wilkins also played down the touchline spat between Mourinho and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
He added: “When you have got two coaches on the sideline that have so much passion then you are going to have a little [confrontation].”
“You could have said Conte was disrespectful to Jose. It was just a conflict of interests, they just had a row and these things happen.”
