Mikel: How Mourinho Made Salah Wept Like A Child
Former Super Eagles midfielder, Mikel Obi has recounted how Jose Mourinho ripped off Mohamed Salah and made him wept like a child after having a bad game with Chelsea.
Mikel, who retired from football at 35 in September was signed by the Portuguese manager in 2016.
In an interview with Dailymail, the former Stoke City star stated that the Portuguese tactician was never pleased with the Egyptian international performance and could not hide his anger.
He also recounted how players knew their manager would be sacked under Roman Abramovich.
“We always had a meeting with Roman. Once the team was not doing well, he came in and had a chat with us. Then he sits down, he has this guy, his friend, who sits with him – he’s the interpreter. And then he starts shouting and screaming in Russian!
“If we’re not winning, the next time Roman comes in, he flies in with his helicopter and comes to the training ground and that’s it, we know the manager’s gone. Once he flies in with his helicopter, the manager is gone.”
