jose mourinho Jose Mourinho: Chelsea Did Not Fail Against Manchester City: Daily Soccer Report

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was poetic in defeat after his team lost 2-0 to Manchester City in the FA Cup Fifth Round yesterday, saying that “Chelsea did not fail against Manchester City” and that “Two weeks ago, the best team won. Today the best team won. When the best team wins, football is in peace.”

Mourinho added:

“I don’t say my team failed. I would say that City played much better than us and deserved much more to win.

“The game was simple to analyze – they were the best team, and they won.

“Their second goal was an offside but they would win 1-0 anyway because we were never close enough to score or to be dominant or to scare City in the game.”
