Jose Mourinho angry at Barnes tackle on Matic
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claims a “criminal” challenge by Burnley striker Ashley Barnes could have ended midfielder Nemanja Matic’s career.
Matic was sent off in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge after the Serb reacted angrily to the tackle.
Mourinho made the comments in a wide-ranging interview on Sunday with Sky Sports, reportedly at his own request.
“It could be the end of Matic’s career. A criminal tackle. Matic is a very lucky guy,” Mourinho said.
“Another club would have the power to appeal Matic’s red card.”
