Mourinho tells goading Chelsea fans: ‘Judas’ is still your number one

Jose Mourinho has hit back at a section of Chelsea’s fans who called him “Judas”, insisting he remains No.1 at Stamford Bridge until a manager trumps his Premier League title haul. The Manchester United manager was targeted by some fans throughout Monday night’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea, to which Mourinho held up three fingers in response.

They can call me what they want. I am a professional. I defend my club. I’m really proud of my players, I’m really proud of Manchester United fans.

N'Golo Kante’s low shot was enough for Chelsea to beat holders United - who had Ander Herrera sent off in the first half - and set up a semi-final against Tottenham at Wembley. Mourinho, 54, is Chelsea’s most successful manager after winning titles over two spells in 2005, 2006 and 2015.
