José Mourinho has accepted that Ramires was 'lucky' to escape with just a retrospective ban for his elbow on Sunderland midfielder Seb Larsson last week, but not without first having a typically tantrum-tastic dig at just about everyone else.
Speaking ahead of the his side's trip to Liverpool, Mourinho whinged:
[Ramires] is a lucky guy.
He is a lucky guy because in one minute, or less than a minute – in a few seconds, he was lucky Cattermole didn’t break his leg, lucky Larsson didn’t break his Achilles from behind, and he is lucky he only got a four-game suspension.
He is a lucky guy. We accept the charge because we are happy with it.
Okay José, if you say so.
I kind of thought Mourinho's grump at the the result last week might have abated by now given they have a Champions League semi final to prepare for and a Premier League title to fight for (if they want to), but alas it seems the special one has become little more than the sulky one.
