Even Jose Mourinho’s mum probably ignores his calls from time to time.
We’re talking about the most provocative, hypocritical, snide pantomime villain in Premier League history.
But for Chelsea fans surely he should remain a saint?
On Saturday, after a pulsating draw between Chelsea and Mourinho’s current club Man United, the Stamford Bridge faithful turned on their most successful ever manager.
Ross Barkley’s last gasp equaliser sparked a melee in the technical area, an ignorant Chelsea staff member chose to rile Mourinho.
He took the bait… as any sane human probably would have done.
What followed was a rousing chorus of ‘F*** Off Mourinho!’ that echoed around the stadium before Mike Dean brought an end to a thrilling encounter.
This is the man who, fuelled by Roman Abramovich’s billions, took Chelsea from Thursday night trips to Azerbaijan to the most dominant force in English football.
Three Premier League titles – something he felt needed reminding on Saturday – across two spells, not to mention an FA Cup and three League Cups.
‘The Special One’ arrived with a clamour in 2004 ‘with his ego big’… and not much has changed.
He oversaw Petr Cech, John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho’s transformation into a human wall in his first season, when the Blues conceded a ridiculously measly total of just 15 goals.
95 points wasn’t bad either.
A second league title comfortably followed in 2005/06 before the inevitable cracks began to appear the summer after.
His return to Stamford Bridge in 2013 brought with it more baggage from a tumultuous departure from Real Madrid.
Jose was greyer and spikier but he delivered another title within two years before the wheels fell off again.
The toxicity surrounding his second acrimonious exit cannot be understated.
Rats, leaks and deceit, champions Chelsea were left hovering just above the relegation zone after nine defeats in their opening 16 games.
But even that, even that, shouldn’t distract from his pioneering achievements at Chelsea.
So the big question is… are Mourinho’s misdemeanours really so unforgivable that everything he did for the club before has been forgotten?
He can be an insufferable oaf but you can guarantee if he was, say, a Liverpool icon, he would remain untouchable and treated with nothing but respect.
His name would still reverberate around Anfield, his face on a flag on the Kop.
At Chelsea they don’t seem to offer that kind of historic impunity… and his legacy lies in tatters because of it.
