Jose Mourinho was smuggled out of Chelsea’s training ground through a car boot after he was sacked as Chelsea boss for a second time in 2015, according to The Athletic.
The now-Tottenham boss was appointed Chelsea boss for a second time in 2013 and helped win a fourth Premier League title for the club in 2015.
But just months after that, he was sacked after a shocking run of nine defeats in 16 matches.
Following his dismissal on December 17, 2015, Mourinho was bundled into the boot of Silvino Louro’s SUV to escape the paparazzis.
The Athletic claim a decoy car was also used to ward off the photographers, which worked to perfection.
Pictures emerged the next day of a man who was believed to be Mourinho with a hoodie over his face. That wasn’t Mourinho but Chelsea’s player liaison officer Kevin Campello. The car was followed for about half an hour before some noticed that not all is right.
As photographers pursued the person believed to be Mourinho, the special one instead left Chelsea’s training ground in the boot of Silvino Louro’s SUV.
