Chelsea: Mourinho compares his players to eggs – some good, some news, some rotten

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho during a press conference at Cobham Training Ground, Stoke D'Abernon.

THE Chelsea manager has been taking about eggs ahead of the Blues Champions’ League match against FC Basel. Matt Barlow cocks an ear:

The last time Jose Mourinho ventured into egg territory, he found out Roman Abramovich was an over-easy kind of guy. Mourinho complained about the eggs and Abramovich told him it was over. Easy.
Turned out the Russian liked his managerial relationships the way he liked his eggs.

Pun-tastic stuff. But what did Mourinho “Mother Hen” say of his side that features four players aged 22 and under?

“Beautiful, young eggs. They are eggs that need a mum or, 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. 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.”

Eggs with legs?
