Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho came out on the attack today against Cardiff City saying that the Welsh club wasted the money of people who paid for tickets to the Chelsea-Cardiff game from this past Saturday.
“If I was in that game and I was paying my ticket, I would be worried with the fact that every time the ball was out or stopped and our opponent had to put the ball back in the game, it took a median (average) of 21.5 seconds. That is a waste of money.
“When you multiply that by the number of times the game was stopped, you pay for 90 minutes but you see 55 or 60.
“For me, that’s breaking the rules.”
