Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho handed his Premier League winners’ medal to his daughter following Sunday’s title celebrations at Stamford Bridge.
However, in his post-match press conference the revered Portuguese coach stated that his daughter must hand the medal to her brother.
"My son couldn't be here today,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by ESPN journalist Miguel Delaney. “I gave the medal to my daughter, but she knows she has to give it to him."
Mourinho was photographed throwing his medal to his daughter, situated in the front row, after Chelsea’s comfortable 3-1 victory over Sunderland.
The former Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager has previous when it comes to throwing his medals into the crowd - back in 2006 he famously did the same thing after Chelsea’s memorable 3-0 victory over Manchester United.
That medal later fetched a whopping £16,800 at an auction in February 2010.
Four years earlier, Mourinho told reporters: “The medal was for everybody but I think the person in the crowd who got the medal is a lucky guy who goes home with a fantastic memory or goes to eBay and makes a fortune.”
Whether Mourinho’s daughter attempts to flog it on eBay before her brother gets his mitts on it remains to be seen.
