The former Real Madrid boss also explained how difficult it was for him to keep his players from getting distracted with the Manchester City versus Liverpool game.
‘I prepared the players for an impossible mission, which was not knowing the City result. Forget City. I knew that was an impossible mission, but I didn’t want the television on in the hotel or on the bus.
‘I told them I didn’t want any kind of manifestation or disappointment if City scored in the last minute, or Liverpool won. I wanted complete silence. We were successful on that.
‘But one member of my staff, Silvinho, jumped up in the bus. I wanted to kill the guy. He broke the rule.’
Chelsea currently lead the English Premier League log by five points with a game in hand.
