In a bizarre post match press conference, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho claimed he hadn’t even spoken to his players before the 1-0 win at Manchester City.
Instead Billy the Masseur gave the team talk.
Mourinho claimed the Scottish Masseur “was screaming so much in Scottish, I didn’t understand it.”
The mad piece of management seemed to work, with Chelsea outplaying their title rivals at the Etihad.
Mourinho claims Billy McCulloch, the masseur, gave team-talk: 'Shouting in Scottish – 'Grrr! Grrr! Grrr! – I didn't understand any of it'
