This Happened: Chelsea Coach Gave His Benchwarmers A New TV During A Match


Chelsea was about to play Swindon in a Capital One Cup match earlier today, and because Samsung is a sponsor for both teams, the coaches each got a new TV. Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho either watches all his shows on the Internet, or doesn’t like Samsung, because the first thing he did was turn and present the new TV to two of his benchwarmers. As the English say, he wasn’t too keen on it.

Your move, NCAA.

Sporting 22:

Mourinho turned to his substitutes, Andre Schurrle and Ramires, and presented them with the flat screen television.

Meanwhile Chelsea beat Swindon 2-0 to qualify for the next of the Capital One competition. Torres and Ramires were both on target in what was a one sided affair with only a couple of flashes from the home side.

Yes, Ramires got in the game. Guess he has to forfeit his half of the TV.


  • Just Being Honest

    Those players aren’t benchwarmers. These cup ties against lower-tier teams allows the managers for elite teams to rest their stars. Ramires has been a fixture in Chelsea’s lineup for a while. Do some research before you post for a change, or else you end up sounding uninformed and dumb. Isn’t this supposed to be a sports blog?
