Chelsea's José Mourinho walked out of his Match of the Day interview and threatened to abort his press conference when he was asked whether he was concerned Branislav Ivanovic would face a retrospective charge of violent conduct for his apparent headbutt on the Everton substitute, James McCarthy.
Mourinho cut short the questions with the BBC – “Sorry, see you tomorrow” – and also made it clear he would walk out if he was pressed on the incident by newspaper journalists.
“I’m concerned with my reaction because one more question I leave.” Mourinho said. “So I’m more concerned with my reaction because one more question I have to go.”
Ivanovic is still likely to face a three-match ban and Everton’s manager, Roberto Martínez, was aggrieved that the Serb then headed on the free-kick that eventually led to Willian’s goal. “If you look at the images, Ivanovic’s behaviour is wrong,” Martínez said.
