At Stamford Bridge, they call him “The Special One.”
To Paul Lambert and Roy Keane, he’s more like “The Sarcastic One.”

When Jose Mourinho went to shake hands with Lambert and Keane before the match ended between Chelsea and Aston Villa, both were clearly offended by the gesture.
Roy Keane offered his own opinion on Mourinho’s actions, which he has become famous for throughout European football.
I don’t mind all that [Mourinho mind games] but the game is still going on. It’s disgraceful, I’ve seen him doing it to other managers, it is a disgrace. The game is still going on. You wouldn’t do that on a Sunday morning, you would get knocked out.”
While Roy Keane may be the most outspoken man in football, Jose Mourinho is a close second. In typical Jose fashion, Mourinho politely thanked the Aston Villa managers for their criticism.
First of all, I want to say that I appreciate the comments. I think they are both two great examples of polite and very well educated people and because I am a humble guy who tries to learn every day and with every experience, I appreciate the comments.”
Oh Jose, always a step ahead of the game.
While Mourinho’s comments may have caused a chuckle for the media, you can be sure Roy Keane and Paul Lambert aren’t taking the situation so lightly. When the two clubs meet again in February, bad blood will be in the air at Villa Park.
