German referee Harm Osmers was in charge as the Premier League side lost 3-0 to their Bundesliga opponents, with two of the home side's goals coming from the penalty spot.

Chelsea started with Diego Costa, Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas and Thibaut Courtois - and Didier Drogba came on as a second-half substitute - but Mourinho felt the whole afternoon had been a waste of time.

"I learned nothing from this game," Mourinho told Sky Sports News. "Our expectations are not fulfilled because when we decided to have this match here in Bremen we thought about an evolution in difficulty.

"We were expecting a fast game a competitive game but we come here and the referee thought this was a circus for Bremen fans - for them to have fun - and he killed the match.

"This game for us would have been perfect. I like the Werder Bremen team - they are fast, intense and they defend with a lot of people. The opponent is perfect for us to compete today but we couldn't play."

Mourinho also said that he has no problem with Frank Lampard joining Manchester City on a six month loan deal.

Lampard has joined New York City FC - who are part owned by City - but he could now play against Chelsea next month; If he does, Mourinho expects him to get a good reception.

"He is a free agent, he can choose his club so there's no problem at all," he said. "When he comes to Stamford Bridge he is welcome." 

@ uncle money, English not your strongest suit? Struggling to understand what was said by the man in charge of the football team? Let me help you. Jose was complaining against the Ref as he ruined the match. I don't know if you understand football but the purpose of pre season friendlies is to get your players fit, get new players and start to get your team playing well. The results are secondary. You keeping up? For a fan of a team that includes Steven (watch me dive) Gerrard I would keep your opinions about penalties to yourself.

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
