Manager: Cop threw me out of cup final
By wire services
Published February 28, 2005
CARDIFF, Wales - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was ejected during England's League Cup final Sunday, saying police thought he was inciting Liverpool fans by gesturing that they remain silent.
Mourinho said the referee acted at the behest of police during his team's 3-2 overtime victory. He watched much of the game on TV after his ouster in the 79th minute.
Mourinho insisted his gesture - placing his finger to his lips - was aimed not at fans but at reporters who criticized his team.
"To me it's unusual to be sent off by a policeman," said Mourinho, who guided Portugal's FC Porto to the European Champions League title last year. "Not by a referee or a fourth official but by a policeman. ... If I made a mistake I apologize," he added.
