Jose Mourinho makes a sly dig at Antonio Rudiger over Heung Min Son red card drama after his side loses to Chelsea in the Premier League game.
Chelsea lost to Tottenham Hotspur in the 18th matchday of the Premier League and it has brought out sour Jose Mourinho out soon as the Portuguese manager makes a sly dig at Antonio Rudiger.
In the last phase of the match, the German International was seen being hit by Heung Ming Son on the ribs, which led the Chelsea defender rolling on the floor.
This eventually led to exit of Son from the match, as VAR charged the Korean midfielder of violent conduct on the pitch. Many claims that the red card was a harsh punishment on Son in response to what he actually did.
Thus, how could Mourinho stay out of this and the Portuguese manager made a vicious statement against Rudiger in the post-match interview after his side lost by 2-0.
‘I hope Rudiger will recover from broken ribs because he will have broken ribs for sure.’ says Jose Mourinho. Meanwhile, Mourinho condemned the racial attack happened on Rudiger and spoke about it too.

‘I saw nothing, I saw the referee follow the protocol, he came to Andre Marriner (fourth official), he came to me and Frank Lampard and told us what was happening.
‘The protocol was followed and we are one of the clubs..every club is together on this situation and of course, we are disappointed.’ he concluded.
With this, Chelsea’s fight for the top-4 has definitely been reignited as recent losses brought them under the danger of losing their spot in the table.
Meanwhile, Spurs had a chance to make progress in the table but with this loss, they have to wait for further opportunities as the Premier League set to enter into its second phase.
