Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hit back at Ricardo Carvalho.Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hit back at Ricardo Carvalho following the defender's outburst at being omitted for the start of the new season.
Carvalho expressed his frustration at being left out of Chelsea's team in both the Community Shield and the opening Premiership fixture at Wigan.
Mourinho opted to select John Terry and William Gallas as his centre-back pairing - a decision that left Carvalho far from happy.
However, Mourinho has wasted little time in responding to the Portuguese international and insists he must be prepared to wait for his chance in The Blues' first XI given the wealth of quality in their squad.
"Ricardo Carvalho seems to have problems understanding things, maybe he should have an IQ test," Mourinho quipped to Record.
"I am not happy to have heard about this through the papers.
"Ricardo has worked with me for four years and I do not understand these quotes, he probably needs to see a doctor.
"I told the players this summer that they will need to have patience because we have a great squad and everyone needs an opportunity.
"Carvalho knows how I work, I think he is just temporarily angry but I will speak with him personally.
"We can't have this kind of thing at Chelsea."
