Mourinho texts Chelsea players, hands tactics to Blues coaching staff

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has texted his former Chelsea stars well wishes for tonight's clash at Barcelona. The Special One left Stamford Bridge nearly five years ago. But still his name features large when it comes to Chelsea's Champions League fate.

The Sun says Mourinho sent good luck texts to his old-boys Petr Cech, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

And Rui Faria, one of Mourinho's henchman who also worked at Chelsea, gave assistant boss Steve Holland a tactical analysis of how Real got between Barca's defenders to win El Clasico on Saturday to virtually tie up La Liga title.

He told his former players: "You can do it and so can we. See you in Munich."
