The day that he was sacked by the Blues, the Portuguese manager escaped from the press while they waited for him in the facilities.
José Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea on 17th December 2015. That same day, the press were at the doors of the Cobham Training Ground waiting on the manager. But he never appeared.
‘The Athletic’ tells this fact, how Mourinho was capable of escaping the media the day that he was left without a job in London.
He did it all with the help of Kevin Campello. He put on a hoodie that covered his face and an expensive watch. The media thought that Campello was Mourinho.
However, the Chelsea boss went hidden in goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro’s car boot half an hour after Campello went out the main door.
‘AS’ recalls the day that Mourinho, in 2005, was sanctioned by UEFA and to give the technical chat before a match against Bayern Munich he got into a laundry cart so they wouldn’t see him.
