Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been commenting on the decision of French broadcaster CanalPlus to publish a video of a private conversation.
Mourinho was making a personal appearance in Switzerland where he was recorded bemoaning the lack of goal scorers at Stamford Bridge and making an unflattering reference to Samuel Eto’o‘s age.
“I think you should be embarrassed as media professionals because by the ethical point of view I don’t think you are happy your colleague is happy to be able to record a private conversation and to make it public.
“I think you should all be embarrassed because it is against your ethic. Is it a not happy comment? Absolutely.”
“I am not defending what I am saying, I am attacking something that is from your professional area. That person showed what he is or what he does not know about the job,ﾡﾱ he added.
“The comment is not a good one and not one I would do in a serious, official way. First of all because I don’t make fun, second if there are managers in the world that defend their players I am one of them.
“Third because Samuel Eto’o is Samuel Eto’o. Four times a Champions League winner. It was with him I had the best ever season of my career.
ﾡﾰIt was a funny conversation between me and someone not in the football world. It is a disgrace someone is taping a private conversation.”
