Regardless of what he was saying there, the quotable Jose Mourinho dished out some doozies after Chelsea dominated Schalke in UEFA Champions League play on Tuesday.


The 5-0 win in Gelsenkirchen was complete and emphatic. Mourinho called it perfect.

And the Chelsea manager told the German club not to sweat the blowout. They was nothing they could do about it.

From the BBC:

“I think they have to accept we were too strong for them,” added Mourinho, whose side inflicted Schalke’s first home defeat since April.

“When you lose against a team that produces a perfect performance and a perfect result it’s not your fault.”

This isn’t just the Special One being cocky. He’s also correct. Chelsea absolutely throttled Roberto Di Matteo’s crew on the road, handing out a comprehensive win that gifted them Group G and a seeded spot in UCL Round of 16.
