The manager gets all poetic at the Champions League press conference.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has decided that metaphors are the best way to go by describing the squad at Stamford Bridge as ‘beautiful young eggs.’
Ahead of the Blues’ Champions League opener with FC Basel on Wednesday, Mourinho was in good spirits and decided to go a little left-wing with the 50-year-old’s descriptions.
“Beautiful, young eggs,” the Portuguese maestro described the young talent at Stamford Bridge, as quoted by the Mirror.
“Eggs that need a Mum – in this case, a Dad – to take care of them, to keep them warm during the winter, to bring the blanket and work and improve them.
“And one day the moment will arrive when the weather changes, the sun rises, you break the eggs and the eggs are ready to go for life at the top level.”
Mourinho was referring in this rather bizarre way to the youngsters at the club who will get their chance in Europe’s top club competition.
Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Oscar and for the first time since joining the club, Marco Van Ginkel, are all expected to start the match against the Swiss champions.
“If you think, as we do in the club, about the evolution of the players and the team, it’s important for them to play on a big stage like the Champions League,” the boss added.
Mourinho is keen to add the Champions League title to the two the coach already has this season, with the former Real Madrid manager previously winning the tournament in 2004 and 2010.
