Mourinho in furious clash with Chelsea pair Matic, Salah

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho clashed with his players at halftime of yesterday's stalemate with Norwich City. The Daily Mail says Mourinho, who stormed down the tunnel at half-time, blasted a number of players including Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah for their shocking performances in the opening 45 minutes. He later admitted the first-half display was "lazy".

It is understood manager Mourinho told Matic he was having serious reservations about the decision to bring him back to Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window.

Egypt winger Salah, who was dragged off at half-time, was told to make sure he returned for pre-season "ready to be a footballer".

Mourinho then stormed out of the dressing room and appeared in the dug-out a few minutes before the start of the second half, sitting alone until his players came out.
