Jose Mourinho, the pugnacious Chelsea manager, was arrested four days before the Blues' FA Cup final against Manchester United, on charges of obstructing police.

The incident took place after Mourinho rushed home from Chelsea's team awards banquet after his wife, Tami, called, saying an animal health official and two police officers went to their central London home to place their dog into quarantine, believing it had been taken out of Britain and then brought back without the necessary shots.

Mourinho reportedly refused to let them take his dog and was arrested at around 10 p.m. after arguing with police. He was cautiond for obstructing police and released. A spokesperson said the dog, now reported to be missing, had the proper shots.

"Since what happened yesterday to my family, nothing hurts me," the Portuguese manager said when asked at a press conference on Wednesday if he was hurt that commentators said United had played better soccer than Chelsea this season. "It is impossible to compare my family with football."

Mourinho then asked that he and his family be left alone "because to go to school followed by 10 [television] cameras, 20 photographers and 20 more people behind, I don't think is a nice situation for the kids."
