The Icelandic striker was a key part of Mourinho’s squad during his first spell at Stamford Bridge.
“Eidur Gudjohnsen trolled Jose Mourinho after Chelsea’s win over Man United”
Gudjohnsen helped fire Chelsea to their first Premier League title in 2005 and played a part in the defence of their crown the following season.
But despite his close relationship with Mourinho, the former Blues man couldn’t help making a joke at the Man United manager’s expense after Chelsea swept his team away in a 4-0 win earlier today.
Gudjohnsen wrote on Twitter: “Jose still knows how to get the best out of @ChelseaFC#CHEMUN”
The tweet soon went viral, with almost 30,000 retweets and 20,000 likes.
Mourinho’s return to west London got off to the worst possible start.
Pedro put the hosts in front inside the first minute and it all went downhill from there.
Gary Cahill added a second before half-time and Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante made it a walk in the park with goals in the second period.
