After they read the full story in Metro, it seems someone has decided to play Jose Mourinho at his own mind games!
Now as our regulars note, that takes a very brave man and the person in question is Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc.
The former French international has made a quip about the fact that the Blues have a weekend off to prepare for their Champions League trip to Paris next week – and all because Mourinho was clever enough to get them knocked out of the FA Cup.
Speaking to French publication Le10Sport recently, former Manchester United defender Blanc noted: “Our Champions League tie with Chelsea? Mourinho is a genius.”
Most Chelsea fans are now grateful for that extra preparation time given they had to play against Everton in midweek but the humiliation of that game against Bradford City still lingers in the air.
Chelsea fans. Are you confident that you can prevail past PSG in the Champions League this season? Will it be as tight a tie as it was last year? Let us know your thoughts below.
