Football – Mourinho shows his special side at Chelsea press conference

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been

called many things during his days at the helm

of various European giants.

It's probably not too farfetched to think that

the self-proclaimed 'Special One' has been

referred to as 'the arrogant one' or 'the

childish one' by managers, players and fans

down the years.

The fiery Portuguese has ruffled a few feathers

during his 21 years in management, but upon

his return to Stamford Bridge he claimed that

he was no longer 'the Special One.' Instead he

is now apparently 'the happy one.'



Bearing a smile to his first press conference

back at Chelsea that only Lewis Carroll's

Cheshire Cat could emulate, Mourinho

declared that returning to a club he loves

after a nine-year gap had made him a different

person. And it certainly seems that the 50-

year-old remains true to his word.

Sarcastic, phlegmatic but always entertaining

in his press conferences, Mourinho took the

latest edition to a new level. Ahead of the

Blues' clash with Steaua Bucharest, the

Chelsea boss called up on a translator to

deliver his answers to those from Romania.

And, in typical fashion, he went off on a

tangent in response to the media's questions.

Finally realising that the translator needed to

repeat everything in Romanian, the Portuguese

began to whip off his jumper as the man to

his right began relaying the words.

Grabbing a pen and frantically scribbling on

the garment, Mourinho then handed the

signed jumper to his translator before

apologising and declaring: "Who pays this guy,

Chelsea? Double his wages!"

Mourinho: "Who pays this guy [refering to the

translator]? Chelsea? Double his wages!" #CFC
