London: Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was on the verge of storming out of a media briefing on Friday after a grilling over his criticism of the club’s medical staff. Mourinho sparked controversy last weekend when he blasted first-team doctor Eva Carneiro and physio Jon Fearn for treating Eden Hazard after the Chelsea midfielder suffered an injury late in a 2-2 draw against Swansea.

On Friday, Mourinho refused to answer the first seven questions on the issue. “Don’t make me another question or I go.
