I don't want to touch the theme and everything that surrounds the situation because I want to be on the bench."(Q: Is it a worry that referees might pay particular attention to him that they don't miss things off the ball. Do you think the referees might be affected?)"I don't comment and I tell you why because in the rules book, it says that some managers they can speak about the referee before the game or after the game. Some others, they cannot. And then comes the list and I am in the list and I am in the list that are punished if they speak about referees before the game or after the game. So I have to stick with that rule book, and I am in the list of the ones who cannot speak about the referees which is what I'm doing."SOUNDBITE: (English) Jose Mourinho, Chelsea manager:(about Newcastle manager Steve McClaren)"I think in this country only one manager is not under pressure. Every other manager is under pressure. So Steve is under pressure, I am under pressure, Brendan (Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers), (Manchester City manager Manuel) Pellegrini is under pressure, everybody's under pressure. We cannot lose matches, we cannot be below expectations, we have to reach our objectives. So I have sympathy for all of them and I believe they also have sympathy to myself because it's a difficult job. There is one, that for some reason, is outside that list, but good for him, good for him, and of course I have sympathy for Steve."SHOTLIST: 1. 00:00 SOUNDBITE: (English) Jose Mourinho, Chelsea manager:2. 00:55 SOUNDBITE: (English) Jose Mourinho, Chelsea manager:Source:Premier League Productions
