English FA agrees with Jose Mourinho

The English footballing body accepted the criticism it received from the Chelsea boss following a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at a Wembley outfield that was not up to the mark.

The Football Association agrees that the Wembley pitch needs to be improved after Mourinho hit out at the quality of the playing surface.

Following the defeat to Arsene Wenger’s side, the Portuguese tactician said that the pitch was a disaster and rather than slapping the Blues boss with a fine, the FA has been wise enough to own up to its shortcomings and appreciated the feedback provided.

“We appreciate the feedback on playability and will continue to improve the quality of the pitch, which we have every confidence in as it matures,” a spokesperson said.

“In this instance it is simply that the pitch is less mature than we would ordinarily wish for football, given the summer concert season and the early start to the football calendar.”
