It may only be a little white lie, but Jose Mourinho’s epic non-team talk at Fulham on Saturday may have been a little more vocal than the Special One wanted people to believe.
Following Chelsea 3-0 win at Craven Cottage which left the Blues four points clear at the top of the Premier League, reporters wanted to know what Jose Mourinho said to his players at halftime to inspire the second half performance after a miserable first 45.
Mourinho proudly told the BBC that he said absolutely nothing:
At half-time, I told them nothing – nothing – not a word. I walked in, then I walked out. I don’t know if anyone else gave a team talk. I was not inside the dressing room.
Mourinho’s version of events was slightly contradicted by Chelsea’s hero of the game Andre Schurrle, who told a different story when asked to recall what Mourinho did during the interval at Fulham. The German international said:
It was like 10, 15 seconds in the dressing room. He told us something I don’t want to tell here. But, erm, then he left us and everyone knew we needed to change our face… Everyone has big respect for the manager.
