Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho apologises to West Ham's Sam Allardyce for STUPID words



Posted Friday, December 26, 2014 by Dailystar.co.uk

JOSE MOURINHO has said a massive ‘sorry’ to former sparring partner Sam Allardyce.

The Chelsea boss admits he was stupid to label Big Sam a footballing dinosaur in a bitter war of words last January.

Mourinho felt the West Ham boss was more of a Big Sham after a boring 0-0 draw and laid into Allardyce’s negative tactics.

The flamboyant Chelsea boss accused Allardyce of playing football from the 19th century and publicly blasted his side for cheating, time wasting and feigning injury.

But Mourinho has issued a heartfelt apology to the man he now considers a big pal.

And motormouth Mourinho revealed he is happy to eat some festive humble pie as the two sides meet again, with the new-look Hammers riding high in fourth spot.

HUMBLE PIE: Jose Mourinho admits he was wrong to criticise Sam Allardyce last season

The Chelsea boss said he took back his harsh comments, admitting: “Yeah, stupid, silly words.

"Last season I had a couple of words about them. Not about the way they played, about the way they started wasting time after two minutes of the game, which I don’t like.

"But I respect him as a coach. As a person he is a very good guy but as a coach he has a beautiful career.

"I’m happy that he’s doing well with West Ham. I think he deserves respect. He has my respect.”

The two will embrace warmly at Stamford Bridge today in stark contrast to the public fall-out which left Allardyce blazing: "I don’t give a s***e!”

But now Mourinho admits he got it all wrong after Allardyce, who has yet to be offered a new deal, turned the Hammers into a side challenging for a European spot.
