Salt Lake City, UT - At the post game press conference after Manchester United defeated Real Salt Lake 2-1, manager Jose Mourinho admitted that he, "Still can't believe Petke was fired from Metro," as he shook his head in disbelief.
"The man was a Metro LEGEND. Don't say his name," screamed Mourinho towards the shocked press corps as they asked him his opinion on Real Salt Lake and their manager. "He is a good one, I just can't believe that Ali Curtis didn't see Petke in his plan."
Mourinho was, reportedly, incensed at the shabby treatment of Petke over 2 years ago as he stated, "Petke lead Metro to their first trophy ever, and they fire him? No, no no. We must acknowledge this. We must."
After acknowledging his respect of the RSL coach, Mourinho finished his remarks by stating that he just didn't know what was going on with Red Bull New York but that he, "Needed to get some more sweater vests." Mourinho had no comment regarding Valencia's red card or his decision to not substitute the player, but immediately changed the message back to Mike Petke saying, "I'm still stunned. STUNNED."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Mourinho drops off a bottle of wine to Caleb Porter's house for, "that whole handshake deal a few years ago."
