King of the press conference, Jose Mourinho pulled off another slick move today after Chelsea’s defeat at Crystal Palace.
The Special One was asked what quality he wants to bring to his Chelsea side next season, after a frustrating defeat at Selhurst Park.
You may have thought it would be a “finisher” or a new striker but instead, Mourinho simply refused to say it out loud and wrote down on a journalists notepad the answer.
Luckily for Chelsea and Jose Mourinho, Diego Costa has “balls” and is also a goal scorer!

Mourinho was asked post-match what Chelsea lacked. Said he couldn't say it. Reporter asked him to write it down & he put one word: 'BALLS'.

Asked what quality is required, Mourinho said: "I can't say in front of cameras. I can write it." Given a notepad, he wrote "balls". #CPFC
