Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho refused to speak to the media after defeat at West Ham.
Mourinho was sent off a halftime by ref John Moss.
He then refused to speak to the media after the match, which ended in a 2-1 loss – the ailing champions’ fifth loss in 10 games this term.
On Friday Mourinho said his relationship with the media would change after phone camera footage of him walking around in west London was published – and the very next day he dodged the usual post-match press conferences.
Chelsea’s meltdown began in the 44th minute at Upton Park when Nemanja Matic, already on a yellow card after fouling Mauro Zarate, cynically brought down Diafra Sakho to earn his marching orders.
Mourinho stood impassively on the touchline as the midfielder trudged off, but behind him first-team coach Silvino Louro’s histrionics got him removed from the dug-out.
Only when the Portuguese failed to retake his position pitch-side, instead appearing in the stand amidst a flurry of camera phones – which no doubt would not have improved his mood – was it apparent that he too had been sent off.
