- Will Ferrell joked about Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
- The manager was sitting in the audience during Ferrell’s GQ Awards speech.
Will Ferrell has always downplayed his support for Chelsea but that didn’t stop him from having a cheeky dig. The comedy legend joked about Mourinho’s managerial style –
calculated boring and negative – in a speech he gave at the GQ Awards.
He quipped: “Keep playing defence, man. Seven guys in the box, I love it. I love it.”
Ferrell, who has recently become a co-owner of LA Galaxy, appeared on ‘Men in Blazers’ to promote ‘Zoolander 2’ but also talked football with the irritating British duo.
“I feel horribly guilty because I feel like I had a hand in getting Jose Mourinho fired,” he explained on the Men In Blazers show. “I’m so sorry. I was just trying to make a joke because I really actually admire the guy.”
Commenting on his role as co-owner; “I’m going to be cold and distant, and show up at very inopportune times, and shout, berate players in the middle of games, that sort of thing,” he joked.
