Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is never too far away from a mischievous joke or prank.

The Special One is renowned for his charismatic and sometimes unsuspected actions during press conferences and interviews. 

And that was proved again today as he attempted to trick Chelsea’s head of media Steve Atkins, as he kept him waiting ahead of his press conference today.

The Chelsea boss told journalists that he planned to walk out on the conference when Atkins entered the room, as a punishment for the media man being late.

And after waiting for a couple of minutes alone on the press desk, Mourinho got his moment to pull his trick.

When Atkins eventually arrived, he was greeted by the sight of Mourinho standing up and walking off as if he had finished the conference unsupervised.

The move brought chuckles from the crowd, who quickly settled before Mourinho got his game head on and started to answer questions about this Sunday’s local derby with Arsenal.

Hazard future

One of the topics was the future of Eden Hazard, which Jose was quick to address and clarify, insisting there is no way the Belgian will leave the club this summer after signing a new dive-and-a-half-year contract earlier this year. 

He told reporters: "He has just signed a new contract. We didn't put a gun against his head. He had lots of time to think about it.

"He had the family to assist him in his analysis. He likes Chelsea, he likes the league, he likes the team.

"He made a commitment for the future of the team by signing up. It is a very good contract. I don't think he is interested in anything else."
