Chelsea manager Mourinho: Leave technical area alone

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists a review of the coach's technical area is not needed.

There have been such calls after Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew's clash with Hull City midfielder David Meyler last week.

"I don't think it's needed and I never had a problem to share a short space with other managers," said Mourinho.

"I think the manager should have that freedom to come out and to speak with the players and to walk in the technical area.

"I think the problem is the human nature and the human nature is open to mistakes.

"I made mistakes in technical areas too. I paid for the mistake, I was suspended for the mistake. And every one of us can make mistakes."
