Mourinho doesn't want Foy involved in future Chelsea games

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho doesn't want Chris Foy to ref their games.

Foy sent off two players and Mourinho for Chelsea's defeat at Aston Villa on Saturday.

Mourinho said: "The players were speaking about it during the week. My philosophy is that I never care who the ref is, I don't want to know. If for some reason I know the referee is Mr Anthony or Mr Jon, I always think that the referee is a good referee, I look always positive.

"But during the week the players were speaking about the situation and I think from now on, the next time we have Mr Foy, I have to work my people in a different way because I don't want this.

"But do they have a reason? Maybe it is helpful that the committee doesn't send him to our matches.

"I don't have the right to request. It's just I think they have to analyse the situation and see if every time he has Chelsea - or not every time - but many times he has Chelsea and problems are there, I think maybe it would be a good decision."
