Jose Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea in December, but never got a farewell from the Blues…untill now.
According to an exclusive report by The Telegraph, the Portuguese manager has received a letter from Stamford Bridge, thanking him for his achievements during his second stint with the club.
Chelsea also handed Mourinho replica versions of the Premier League and Capital One Cup trophies he won last season.
The letter and trophies were sent to Mourinho’s home in west London this week and were presented in a blue box.
Club chairman Bruce Buck stated in the letter that the 53-year-old would always be welcome at Stamford Bridge in the future, without specifying if that could be in a role within the club.
Mourinho first coached the Blues from 2004 until 2007, after winning the Champions League with Portuguese side FC Porto (3-0 against Monaco).
He won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, and two League Cups during his first spell, before being sacked on September 20, 2007.
Inter and Real Madrid were his next teams, before he rejoined the Blues before the 2013/2014 season.
