Chelsea owner Abramovich handed Mourinho final insult

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich reportedly gave Jose Mourinho a final insult immediately after their 1-1 draw with Rosenborg last week.

The Mirror says after the Blues' 1-1 bore draw with Rosenborg in front of just 24,973 fans at Stamford Bridge, Abramovich came into the dressing room clearly deeply upset and angry at his team's dismal performance.

Abramovich first shook Mourinho's hand, deliberately turned his back on the Portuguese boss and then said sarcastically to the players: "fantastic football."

It proved to be the final insult for Mourinho, who left the club just 24 hours later, as knew then that his relationship with the club's Russian owner had broken down completely.
