Chelsea boss borrowed 'machine' from Torres to cut hair

Published 2 Comments

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been causing something of a stir with his sharp new haircut, and the Portuguese says Fernando Torres is to thank for the close crop he is now sporting.

Mourinho gave his first public outing of his new style during a press conference ahead of the victory over West Ham last weekend, and left many aghast at the change from his more accustomed side-sweep.

It was only on Monday, however, that reporters finally had the courage to question Mourinho about his shaved head during a media briefing before the Champions League encounter with Basel, and the 50-year-old gave the reasons for his change of style.

When asked who cut his hair, the Stamford Bridge boss said: "Myself... in the training ground, yes!

"I decided to do it, I asked Fernando [Torres] to give me his machine, and I did [it] myself, in front of the mirror, it's nice... and cheap!"

Mourinho's decision to go for the short look brought back memories of his first spell at Chelsea when he described a similar haircut as a sign of entering his 'going to war' mode.

Chelsea could do with this mentality in Switzerland on Tuesday evening, knowing that three points will win Group E and assure the club of a passage into the knockout phase of the competition having fallen at the first hurdle last term.
