Mourinho: We're Not Against The Referees
Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, says his side are not against the referees and admits he made a mistake by criticising the referees.
The Blues boss said there was a campaign against his side, after Cesc Fabregas was booked for diving against Southampton earlier in the month and he feels he can now control himself.
"Now I am in conditions to control myself and one week ago I couldn't," Mourinho said in his pre-match press conference.
"It would have put myself under bigger problems, so now I can smile and control my words."
Mourinho added that he knows that official's jobs aren't easy.
"We're not against the referees," he added. "We understand the job is not an easy one.
"I am happy to admit my mistakes, so when I spoke with Kevin Friend and realised that it was my mistake and not his mistake, I was more than happy to apologise, so there are no problems.
"But the reality is that every decision is going against us and the results were affected by that but far from us - very far from us - to put any doubt about the honesty of the people."
