Pellegrini Blasts Mourinho 'Mind Games'

MOST COMMENTED

Manuel Pellegrini blasted Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho for playing mind games by telling the media that his team is now out of the title race following the Blues’ shock 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace on Saturday. Chelsea is currently second in the Premier League table, two points behind Liverpool and two points ahead of Manchester City, but Pellegrini’s men still have two games in hand.

"I don't think important managers can give any importance to those mind games. And I don't know if you think managers who seem to play mind games are more intelligent, but I don't think so,” the Chilean told the British press. "I don't have a response because I don't know what Mourinho said. It is not my duty to analyze what Mourinho says, it is your duty.”

He added: “I repeat: I don't know the way he thinks. My way of thinking is that the four teams have the same options to win the title. It is very close, as all the other teams have 18 points more to win, with six games more. We have eight games more and we have to win those six points. We don't have six points more, we have had two games postponed so I think we all have the same chances."
