Rory McIlroy trolls Jose Mourinho following Liverpool’s victory over Chelsea



Generally in sport you rarely get to heard what one sportsperson really thinks of one from another code.

There’s too much respect and admiration for that. At least outwardly.

Occasionally though someone lets a little bit of light in. Step forward: Rory McIlroy.

The world No3 golfer – and massive Manchester United fan – clearly enjoyed Liverpool’s victory at Stamford Bridge and felt obliged to tweet #TaxiForJose as the clock wound down at Stamford Bridge.

Not that McIlroy’s barb is like to bother Mourinho too much – he has bigger fish to fry.

The Chelsea boss was fuming as referee Mark Clattenburg failed to show Lucas a second yellow card during the second half.

He may also be angry when he finds out that the first half probably should have been called to a halt moments before Philippe Coutinho’s equaliser.

Outside of Chelsea fans, you’ll be hard pushed to find anyone who has any sympathy for ‘The Special One’.

Certainly Rory McIlroy doesn’t.

He probably finds it as funny as Jurgen Klopp.
