Chelsea honour Jose Mourinho's service by sending him replica trophies

Published 1 Comments

Chelsea have made an effort to preserve their ties with Jose Mourinho by sending him replica versions of the trophies he won during his second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge, according to The Telegraph.

The Portuguese, who was sacked by the west London club in December following the Blues’ disastrous title defence, also received a letter penned by club chairman Bruce Buck to acknowledge his efforts.

Chelsea are said to have delivered the gifts to Mourinho’s west London home during the week in a bid to make peace with the 53-year-old following his tumultuous departure in December.

Mourinho was reportedly handed the bad news by Roman Abramovich’s assistant, Eugene Tenenbaum upon returning to his office after the squad’s Christmas lunch.

The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager was never likely to be short of job offers after leaving Chelsea, and has been widely reported as the man to succeed Louis van Gaal at Manchester United next season.
