Mourinho goes under the knife

CHELSEA have announced manager Jose Mourinho underwent surgery on his elbow yesterday to fix a long-standing complaint.

The 50-year-old oversaw Chelsea's 3-1 Premier League defeat of Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday before attending a Football Writers' Association dinner. He then went under the surgeon's knife yesterday.

Chelsea stated on Twitter: "Jose Mourinho today underwent a minor arthroscopic procedure on a long-standing elbow complaint. He will return to work tomorrow."
