Mourinho: I Will Keep Shaking Hands Before Final Whistle

–Chelsea boss says he has no reaction to Wenger’s apology

Jose Mourinho insists he has no regrets over his touchline spat with Roy Keane and will continue to antagonise opposition benches by attempting to shake hands before the final whistle.

Aston Villa assistant manager Keane claimed a Sunday league boss would have floored Mourinho if he had done that.

Mourinho said: ‘First I want to say that I appreciate the comments (from Keane), I think that they are both two great examples of polite and well educated people. Because I am a humble guy trying to learn every day. I appreciate their comments.

Asked if he would understand why people would be upset: ‘No’.

Asked if he would do it again, he replied: ‘Yes’.

A week after the victory over Villa, Mourinho clashed with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on the touchline during Chelsea’s 2-0 win over the Gunners.

Having initially claimed he had nothing to apologise for, Wenger has since told French TV he ‘regrets’ the incident.

Asked whether he was pleased with the apology, Mourinho replied: ‘I have no reaction. No reaction.

‘I gave you my reaction after the match, saying nothing had happened. The reaction from everyone else was saying nothing had happened.’
