LONDON: After only one weekend of the English Premier League season, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is in familiar territory: Embroiled in an irrational dispute and his conduct being denounced.The unexpected target of Mourinho's ire is the club doctor, whose misdeed appears to be her eagerness to race onto the field to treat an apparently injured Chelsea player.The protocol – designed to limit time-wasting by teams – required the winger to leave the field for a short time, leaving Chelsea with only nine players as the Premier League champions chased a winner.By picking a row with a Chelsea colleague, Mourinho has revived memories of the fallout with owner Roman Abramovich which led to his first period in charge ending in 2007 .That came a month into his third season in charge – a milestone Mourinho is just weeks away from reaching in his second spell in the west London club's dugout.Given Mourinho only signed a new four-year contract last week, his future seems secure.
