Chelsea have lost their last two games and instead of drilling his men, the former Real Madrid chose to oversee a bout of handball and basketball.
“Today instead of tactical work and set-pieces as we usually do before the game, I did a funny session,” Mourinho explained.
“We played handball and basketball, we played with the goalkeepers with us. Everybody was smiling and laughing and that’s important. Sometimes it is best not to massacre players with tactical situations. It was a good session.”
