Following goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and manager Maurizio Sarri's heated exchange during the Carabao Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester City on Sunday, former Blues boss Jose Mourinho has had his say on the matter.
The incident, during which the goalkeeper refused to be substituted by his manager, took many by surprise, but both the player and coach have downplayed the rather strange event.
Sarri, who was left fuming at the 24-year-old's resistance, later explained that he thought the player was injured, while Arrizabalaga claimed that he just wanted the boss to know he was fit to continue.
Mourinho has now commented on what happened, saying he is glad he never had a similar experience.
"I don't like that he leaves his coach and the assistant coach in a situation of great fragility," the Portuguese tactician said while working on behalf of DAZN in Spain.
"Luckily I never had to go through this.
"The goalkeeper wants to show his personality, his confidence, wants to show that he is there and wants to be at the shootout and make saves – and I like that."
Arrizabalaga is Chelsea's most expensive signing ever, having arrived at the club from Athletic Bilbao for a fee of about £71.6 million (R1.2 billion).
