Published Add your comment

The GQ Men of the year awards took place recently and Jose Mourinho was in attendance, to pick up his Special Editor's Award. 

The Chelsea boss appeared at the red carpet event to accept his award, the day before the majority of his squad returned from international duty.

Many celebrities and sports personnel were in attendance as Lewis Hamilton, Christoph Waltz, Stuart Broad and Paul Rudd, among others, won awards. Another famous face was that of well known Chelsea fan Will Ferrell.

The actor picked up the comedian of the year award and proceeded to make an animated acceptance speech. 

In his speech, where he claimed he was high on cocaine, the American actor mentioned a number of people and one of them was the Chelsea boss, Mourinho.

Ferrell made a passing jibe at the expense of the Portuguese manager, encouraging him to continue with his defensive tactics. 

He said: Keep playing defence man, keep playing, seven guys in the box, I love it."

The foundations for Chelsea's title winning campaign were built on a solid defence, and the Blues ended the season with the best in the division, conceding 32 goals. 

However, they have not looked so convincing in this campaign, conceding nine goals in the first four matches. 

With the Blues languishing in the bottom half of the table, they face a tough trip to Everton and will welcome the return of their captain John Terry.

The former England international has come in for criticism this season, but still has a lot to offer to the defending champions.

It would come as surprise to see him as a substitute for the trip to Goodison. Either Gary Cahill or Kurt Zouma may drop to the bench.
