“The world is a bit strange. Maybe because of diets, and maybe because of the quality of produce we are eating, I think memories are getting shorter,” José Mourinho begins his wild, metaphysical ride that somehow ends with him basically calling certain members of the media jealous cowards.
The clip above is in response to Jamie Carragher’s and Graeme Souness’s criticisms of Chelsea’s style of play coming after their surprise loss to PSG in the Champions League. Along with theories about modern diets, Mou regales us with thoughts on the impermanence of memory, introduces us to a unique aphorism about shadows and envy, and how his education in soccer and in life has shown him that the best antidote for the naysayers’ barbs is laughter. Laughter and philosophical shots in press conferences.
