Chelsea Coach, Jose Mourinho, has lamented the club’s performance that led to a 1-1 draw with Maribor, blaming it on the complacency of match officials.
Although, Eden Hazard had a late penalty saved , the Portuguese Coach felt the Blues should have led.
He said: “Many times surprises happen when people are not fully focused, when they believe the game can’t be a difficult one. Only when Maribor scored did the players realise the game was in danger. After that, a fantastic reaction. We deserved to win, clearly.
“We scored two goals, two very good goals. The second goal, the referee [Italian Daniele Orsato] decided to disallow but it’s a clear goal. Normally we should win because we scored two goals, but we have to accept it. We didn’t reach the number of goals that we should have in the second half, but the team played well, and we scored a great second goal.”
“And the referee’s team did not have a good night.”
