Mourinho unhappy with refereeing in friendly

Jose Mourinho believes the men in black have already started conspiring against Chelsea, more than ten days before the new season kicks off.

The Portuguese boss wasn't happy about the standard of officiating during Sunday's 3-0 defeat against Werder Bremen.

I learned nothing from this game.

Our expectations are not fulfilled because when we decided to have this match here in Bremen we thought about an evolution in difficulty.

We were expecting a fast game a competitive game but we come here and the referee thought this was a circus for Bremen fans - for them to have fun - and he killed the match.

This game for us would have been perfect. I like the Werder Bremen team; they are fast, intense and they defend with a lot of people. The opponent is perfect for us to compete today but we couldn't play.
