Jose Mourinho Says Luis Suarez Should Have Received Yellow Card For Diving After Eto’o Collision [VIDEO]

chelsea liverpool Jose Mourinho Says Luis Suarez Should Have Received Yellow Card For Diving After Etoo Collision [VIDEO]

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho showed his true colors today when in a post-match interview, he said that Luis Suarez should have received a yellow card for taking a dive after colliding with Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o in the penalty area.

Mourinho said that by the way Suarez dived, it made it look like someone had shot him in the back, and that the incident should have resulted in a clear yellow card for he Liverpool striker.

In the same incredulous comment by Mourinho, the Chelsea manager blew off suggestions that Eto’o should have received a red card for two incidents in the match — the aforementioned foul on Suarez as well as a foul in the first couple of minutes of the match, where he could have easily been red carded.

Here’s a clip of Eto’o fouling Suarez in the box:
