Chelsea park bus before even kicking off at Paris St-Germain

Chelsea bus

Chelsea's bus driver looks to have taken Jose Mourinho's team-talks quite literally.

Ahead of the Blues' 1-1 Champions League draw with Paris St-Germain at Parc des Princes on Tuesday night, images emerged of their team coach lodged in a stadium gangway.

The term has become a common criticism aimed at Mourinho's occasionally overly-cautious tactics.

Chelsea were almost as resolute as the bus in the match, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring from their only shot on target. Edinson Cavani equalised for PSG.
