The Blues pulled off a miraculous fightback to advance into the semi-finals of the Champions League after beating Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. A first half goal from Andre Schurrle gave Chelsea a chance following their 3-1 defeat in the French capital last week, but it was late in the day when substitute Demba Ba popped up in the box to scramble home a second, taking Chelsea through on away goals.
It just wouldn't be Champions League drama without a telling contribution from Blues boss Mourinho though, and as Ba's goal hit the back of the net, 'The Special One' was off down the touchline, evoking memories of his controversial sprint down the Old Trafford touchline in 2004 as his Porto side beat the odds to overcome Manchester United.
Porto won the competition that year and Chelsea now have a great chance of doing the same, but this wasn't just any celebration from Mourinho. As he met his players in the corner of the pitch, rather than celebrate with them as he did at Old Trafford ten years ago, he instead chose to offer some words of wisdom to his players, no doubt preaching that they stay focused at the task at hand rather than think they'd done the job.
Whatever he said, it worked, and Chelsea are now in the last four - the fifth season in a row that Mourinho has led a team to the semi finals of the Champions League.
