Chelsea Fan Tweets Surprise as Jose Mourinho Sits Next to Him During Win
One of the gambles of being a football supporter attending a match is never knowing who will be sitting next to you during the match.
Will you get the noisy know-it-all? Will you get the moaning bloke, who even criticises the loss of the toss?
Conversely, you could find yourself plonked next to the man or woman of your dreams or a new lifelong friend.
Buxton was sat behind the dugout for the game in West London and found himself as the unexpected star of the show.
Jose Mourinho was sent to the stand in the 70th minute of the game after fiercely disputing a warning given to full-back Branislav Ivanovic for time-wasting at a throw-in by referee Anthony Taylor, as Ben Findon of the Sunday Telegraph reported.
Luckily for Mourinho, there was a handy empty seat waiting for him a few rows back. Even luckier for Buxton, it was the seat next to him.
Buxton took a picture of himself sitting alongside Mourinho and tweeted the evidence from the game, via his Twitter account @Sean_Buxtonzz.
OMG morinho is sitting next to me wtf!!!!! pic.twitter.com/wFGQBbjykQ— Sean Buxton (@Sean_Buxtonzz) October 19, 2013
The resulting tweet found its way on to BBC highlights programme Match of the Day, placing Buxton firmly in the media limelight.
The fan even joked that Mourinho was taking up more space than he should in the stands.
Chelsea went on to win the game 4-1, but the victory will mean little to the supporter who has become a Special One himself this weekend.
We suspect his phone may be busy on Sunday.
