The other week it was Drogba and Essien they wanted banned, now it's JM. Something tells me they don't like us and want to undermine us. May be I'm wrong.

Mourinho may face ban for 'son of whore' jibe to referee

Jose Mourinho will today discover whether Mike Riley regards "industrial language" as part of the game or worthy of censure after the Chelsea manager admitted calling the referee "puta", which translates as "son of a whore". If Riley includes the Portuguese insult in his report on yesterday's FA Cup sixth-round tie with Tottenham, Mourinho can expect to receive a heavy fine and/or a touchline ban.

Mourinho's outburst came as his team fought their way back from a 3-1 half-time deficit to force a replay. Afterwards, he laughed off the jibe, which might colloquially be translated more accurately as "son of a bitch". David Beckham was dismissed for using the Spanish equivalent to a linesman early in his career but Mourinho said it was not meant to be insulting when he used it. He claimed he had directed it at his players, even the ball, many times in a match.

"If you have a microphone on the dug-out you will hear me use it 20 times," he said. "The word can be abusive if you understand it as abusive, I can tell people you [pauses] and not be abusive. I say it to myself when I'm not happy with something, to my players, when the ball hits the post. I say it 50 times in training. I do not want to be offensive with anybody. I can be emotional but I am polite."

Mourinho did not look polite when he raged at Riley early in the second half and, reportedly, also confronted the Leeds official in the tunnel at half-time, an encounter Martin Jol, the Tottenham manager, was also said to have joined.

Mourinho said: "In my opinion he gave too many decisions against us. I'm not saying that had a big influence on the result, or they were big decisions, but every free-kick in midfield was against Chelsea.

"I approached him and told him that. We were polite. It was not a confrontation. He said, 'Just let me do my work'."

Mourinho added ruefully: "It did not work. The second half was worse."

Jol had the same experience, which suggests Riley was his own man. Concerned at several bookings for Spurs shortly before the interval, Jol said: "I told him, 'This crowd reacts to everything, like at Everton, don't let them influence you'." Within four minutes of the restart, Riley, admitted Jol, "booked two more".

Mourinho's outburst owed much to his anger at Riley's performances in two Chelsea matches this season. Against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in September, the visitors' Mohamed Sissoko escaped being sent off for tripping Frank Lampard. Michael Ballack was then sent off for hacking down Sissoko. Riley was also in charge of Chelsea's infamous match at Reading the following month when Petr Cech suffered a fractured skull.

"He is a good referee," Mourinho said. "I hope the next time we have him things go back to normal."

I'm not an expert but doesn't "puta" just mean "whore"?

I seem to recall Beckham calling someone "son of a whore" and that was "Hijo de puta" or something like that.

So JM didn't call Riley a "son of whore". He just called him a "whore" which we all know Riley is.

You are right. Puta just means whore, but JM also used the Portuguese for son of. Only the Independent couldn't manage to get a three word quote accurate in its brazen attempt to goad the authorities into taking action against Chelsea yet again.

He shouted "Filho da puta" several times.

To a portuguese speaker that was pretty obvious. No need to be an expert in lipreading.

*The Moos opens his dictionary and looks up "Filho da puta"*

"Filho da puta"

- Portugueese for "son of a whore". Mostly used in context with "Deco" or "Christiano Ronaldo".

yeah, puta has a double meaning, infact it can also mean "pu**y."

Just like Cabrone can mean @##ho!e, or, believe it or not, be slang for "tough guy."

So in Portugal cats and whores are the same?

"Filho da puta"

- Portugueese for "son of a whore". Mostly used in context with "Deco" or "Christiano Ronaldo".

Does the dictionary say anything about Riley? icon_confused.gif

"Riley"

- See rooster.

"Rooster"

- Also known as a c*ck.

I am Portuguese origin.

"Puta" = Bitch

"Moledeeta" = whore

There is no mistaking the 2.
