Jose Mourinho is famed for his mind games, and with his Chelsea side facing Manchester United this Sunday, he’s gone for an overtly diplomatic tack.
Get this: despite the fact that pretty much everyone bar the mathematicians has ruled United out of the title race – they are 11 points behind after all – Mourinho won’t countenance ruling them out just yet.
Reminding his players and fans in his program notes that this ‘isn’t a team 11 points behind us, but the champions’, Mourinho’s gone all out on lulling Moyes and United into a fall sense of security here, by means of ridiculous flattery.
Watch Mourinho flatter the pants of United as part of his mind games on the clip below.
