Lambert needs maturity - Mourinho
- From the section Football
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says that Paul Lambert needs "maturity", claiming that the Villa boss complained too much during his side's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho said that Lambert wanted to be "coach, manager and ref" during the game and disputed claims that Villa should have been awarded a penalty towards the end of the match. He did however concede that a draw would have been "fair".
Chelsea went ahead after Eden Hazard's shot was unluckily pushed into his own goal by Antonio Luna, before Christian Benteke's precise equaliser. A second-half header from Branislav Ivanovic secured the three points for the blues.
