During Chelsea's 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup, some of the supporters at Stamford Bridge were critical of Jose Mourinho.
A section of the home fans in the east stand yelled chants of “Judas”, “You’re not special any more” and “It’s all your fault”, the last a reference to Chelsea being out of European competition this season.
Mourinho responded by pointing to the turf and holding up three fingers to signify the three Premier League titles he won with Chelsea.
Antonio Conte is likely to win the Premier League title in his first season with Chelsea.
“The fans can call me what they want,” said Mourinho, who was sacked in December 2015 with Chelsea, the title holders at the time, 16th in the Premier League but safely through to the Champions League knockout phase. “I am a professional. I defend my club. Until the moment [Chelsea] have a manager that wins four Premier Leagues for them, I’m the No1. When they have somebody who wins four Premier Leagues for them, I’ll be No2. For this moment, ‘Judas’ is No1.”
