The “enemy of football” is the kind of histrionics you expect to hear from a European Football Official.
That being said, Mourinho doesn’t do the game much good in my opinion, and I think he can be a classless jerk and a pathological liar as well. But at least he is never boring, which is more than you can say for Chelsea’s football.
Frisk is a jerk for quitting over this - now any lunatic football supporter will threaten referees with death and soon there will be none left. Frisk was a lousy referee IMHO (very self important) and he is acting like a baby. Heck, Mourinho received death threats when he returned to Porto with Chelsea for a Champions League game - he's still alive and didn't make a fuss
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
It sure didn't help his reputation that he practically forced Anders Frisk out of being a referee, something he could have chosen to do after that assault in Rome. He should have had a bit more class instead of going on about how every referee is always against Chelski etc.
Fair enough calling him "The Enemy Of Football" is a little harsh, but the guy is getting on my nerves (as well as other people's). Alright he managed to turn the Blues around but lets not forget the players and more important Abramovich's generous 'input'. Any now Mourinho thinks he can throw a childish tantrum whenever he likes without any repercussions. He's a . Period
I don't think he's an enemy of football. I think Frisk made the right decision, as a game isn't worth your life. I think bitching about judging and refereeing will exist forever. And I think it is sub human to threaten another mans life over a simple game. Pathetic if you ask me.
Kirkie, still no excuse to be cocky and arrogant. I mean I have nothing against Chelsea (I'm more of a rugby guy myself) but being a good sport and accepting when you lose is all a part of good sportsmanship.
Don't forget that Frisk already got injured by a fan, so the threat to him is not that unlikely as others here try to make it. And I don't know how I would react if there were people threating the life of my loved ones because of my job.
