The storied history of Jose Mourinho

When Mourinho’s Chelsea team tied with Barcelona in 2005, Mourinho claimed that the head referee Anders Frisk held a meeting with Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard during half time – thus breaking FIFA rules and potentially causing Frisk to be biased towards Barcelona. While Rijkaard admitted to doing the deed, he said Frisk turned him away. However, Mourinho fans began sending threats to Frisk which scared him so much that Frisk retired from refereeing. This caused UEFA Referee Chief Volker Roth to call Mourinho “the enemy of football.”
