Jose Mourinho struggles to hide his delight about being in Sunderland tonight for Chelsea's Premier League match.
The selfie was taken by a supporter on his phone, and spotted by Mirror Football.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admits Ashley Cole is "not the happiest guy in the camp" after being dropped for Cesar Azpilicueta in recent weeks.
He said: “I think any player that normally starts matches – and Ashley has through his career – when they don't, naturally they're not the happiest guy in the camp. But professionally he is always. A team player. He's more than ready to play.”
Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has tipped Chelsea to mount a serious Premier League title bid under Jose Mourinho and described their second-half performance against Southampton on Sunday as "mental."
Asked about Chelsea's chances of winning the league, Poyet said:
– Sunderland manager Gus Poyet
Yes, no doubt about it.
They are different, they are stronger. The reaction at the weekend at half-time was all about the mentality of the team more than even the play or the technique or the ability.
It was mental. It was a completely different team in the second half. I am sure there was a unique half-time team-talk in the dressing room or wherever it happened. It was a complete turn-around.
I know him [Mourinho] and I admire him a lot. He's a different-class person and manager. I know him in football ways and as a person and I am looking forward to seeing him before the game.
