Jose Mourinho has taken slight digs at Chelsea on many occasions this season, and this might just be another.

Manchester United beat Rostov 1-0 on Thursday night to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Europa League, and the speaking after the game, Jose Mourinho revealed his unhappiness that Manchester City are out of the Champions League.

According to Mourinho, City will have to play once a week like some other clubs, and we know that Mourinho has claimed Chelsea’s dominance in the league this season is due to Chelsea’s fixture schedule which sees us play once a week on many occasions.

“I am very disappointed [at City going out]. I am not making fun of it. It’s bad for us for many reasons,” he told BT Sport.

“It’s bad for us as an English club and it’s bad for us as all of the five teams in front of us in the Premier League don’t have international football.

“They will be playing one match a week, like some of them have been doing since the beginning of the season.

“They don’t know what fatigue is, they don’t know what accumulation is, they don’t know what it is like to go home and not sleep because of fatigue.

“We will fight to our limits – that’s what we have to do.”
