Chelsea Video Suggests That Jose Mourinho Did Not Storm out of Press Conference

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterNovember 27, 2016

Chelsea have released footage which suggests that manager Jose Mourinho did not in fact storm out of a press conference earlier this week.

There were widespread reports from all major newspapers, which we brought you here, that Mourinho had simply got up and left a conference after growing frustrated at a line of questioning.

Footage does indeed show that he was tiring of talking about Kevin de Bruyne, who had been left out of the squad, but Chelsea TV have shown the wider context of the question.

It had just been confirmed that the Portuguese boss would take one more question, which you can see above.

And although the Chelsea manager does leave somewhat abruptly, he only does so after giving a considered response to the de Bruyne question.

Chelsea went on to win the match against Steaua Bucharest 4-0 last night, and have subsequently got their Champions League campaign back on track after a shock opening day defeat at home to Basel.
