Following Chelsea’s 3-1 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday, it was clear to everyone that Jose Mourinho was not a happy man.

Mourinho, 52, witnessed his side lose for the third time in five Premier League matches in the embryonic stages of the 2015-16 season, and the reigning champs have already fallen 11-points behind league leaders Manchester City.
Now, details have emerged that Mourinho launched a foul-mouthed tirade at Everton boss Roberto Martinez after the game, which comes after Martinez publicly criticized Chelsea’s pursuit of their young defender John Stones this summer.
According to the Daily Mail, Martinez was conducting a post-match interview for the national newspapers in the UK when Mourinho came storming over towards them. Here’s some of the details from Mourinho’s outburst.
Martinez had just given a routine press conference and was standing outside Goodison’s media room, speaking to national newspapers, when a visibly irate Mourinho stormed into view.
Mourinho had been advised by a steward to walk down the touchline and up a set of stairs so he could give his own press conference but ignored what he was told and made a beeline for Martinez.
At first, Martinez was oblivious to what was happening until Mourinho, anxious to board Chelsea’s coach, abruptly interrupted. ‘Roberto, next time you tell me (to) go before you, because we have to travel,’ Mourinho scowled.
Martinez tried to reply: ‘We don’t control that, Jose. I don’t control that.’
But Mourinho was in no mood to listen and fired back: ‘F****** hell!’
All of that came after Mourinho stormed out of a pre-match interview with BT Sport after being asked about Chelsea’s failure to sign Stones during the summer transfer window. All of these signs, coupled with his teams poor performance, prove that “The Special One” is losing his cool.
With many already writing off Chelsea’s chances of winning the PL title this season following a disastrous start to the campaign which sees them in 17th place and with only four points after five games, are things unraveling for Mourinho in his third season back at the Blues just like they have at pretty much every other club he has managed for three years?
Or is that “year three syndrome” just a myth?
