Mourinho outburst raises questions about Chelsea future

News, ReportingWeek2, Sport
Jose Mourinho's angry comments following Chelsea's defeat to Leicester City have increased the pressure on the beleaguered manager. In his post-match interview after the 2-1 defeat to the highflying Foxes, Mourinho raged against his own players, and claimed that the players had "betrayed" him. The manager, who is no stranger to controversy, went on to accuse the Leicester City ball boys of being a "disgrace to the Premier League". Rob Harris, senior sports reporter for the Associated Press, believes that the comments prove Mourinho is beginning to create a divide between himself and the club; "The outburst was a strange diversionary overreaction." Pressure has been building on Mourinho following a recent run of poor results, with the team suffering the greatest number of losses

In a week of celebrations for International Women's Day, Mark Demuth, controller of ITV Sport, Production, said that the number of women candidates applying for positions in sports broadcasting should be higher. Reporter: Jaideep Vaidya @jaideepjourno Sub editor: Kait Borsay It is a long-running argument recently reignited by a parliamentary committee report that highlighted the dearth of women in news broadcasting. Demuth said that men outnumbered women in ITV's production team by around four to one. "We need to encourage women to come through," he told Westminster World in an exclusive chat. "Are we not seeing enough [female] candidates? Possibly." Currently enjoying his second tenure at ITV's London Studios, Demuth has worked across radio and television, most notably for th

Hayley McQueen will be a familiar face to millions of football fans for her work on Sky Sports News, whose studios are based in Osterley, west London.  The station’s coverage of the end of the winter transfer window, deadline day, has become as iconic and dramatic as the window itself. By Kait Borsay For McQueen, who’s worked the last five deadline days at Sky Sports News, it’s not just about one day. “It’s a culmination of a whole month’s worth of work and reporting,” she said. “Sky Sports are very good at it, there’s a beginning, middle and an end. Whilst we don’t think we’ve created a monster, we’ve definitely created something special.” This year business throughout the window was on a par with 2014, some £130m was spent. Chelsea made the most costly signing of deadline day, w
