Jose Mourinho admits he hid in a laundry basket during Chelsea vs Bayern Munich

Chelsea vs Bayern Munich

Time to turn the clock back to 2005, when Chelsea took on Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Rumours have been doing the rounds for years regarding what happened to Jose Mourinho during that match.

To recap, 14-years ago Mourinho was slapped with a two-match touchline ban by UEFA for a two-legged quarter-final against Bayern.

Mourinho was charged for bad behaviour against Barcelona in the previous round.

The Special One was nowhere to be seen when Chelsea took on Bayern at Stamford Bridge.

However Mourinho has now confirmed that not only was he at the game, but he circumvented UEFA’s ban by hiding in a laundry basket.

Jose Mourinho admits he hid in a laundry basket

Jose Mourinho told the following story on beIN Sports on Saturday night:

The fundamental thing of it is: Chelsea v Bayern Munich, a big match in the Champions League. I need to be with my players… and I did it, yeah.

Let me tell the story. You know Stewart Bannister, the Chelsea kit man. Skinny Stewart. I go to the dressing room during the day, so I was there. 

I’m there since midday, and the game is seven o’clock. I just want to be in the dressing room when the players arrive. So I go there, nobody sees me. The problem was to leave after.

Stewart put me in the basket. The metal one, the hard one. Puts me in there. I go in there with a little bit open, so I could breathe, but when Stewart is taking that outside the dressing room, outside the stadium, the UEFA guys are there desperate to find me. 

So when I was there, Stewart closed the box. I couldn’t breathe. When he opened the box, I was dying. I’m serious. I was close to dying. I’m serious, I promise. It’s true, it’s true.
