Why Chelsea boss Mourinho swapped 'horse' for 'jaguar' in Man City row

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has achieved some cheeky product placement during his public feud with Manchester City rival Manuel Pellegrini.

Mourinho, wanting a change from his "horses" analogy about the Premier League title contenders, has switched to motoring horsepower, saying "Manchester City is a Jaguar, you cannot put an L-plate on a Jaguar".

The Daily Mail says Mourinho is set to become a well-paid global ambassador for Jaguar, with the official announcement coming on Thursday when he will be playing a central role in the glitzy launch of the Jaguar F Type Coupe luxury sports car in Canary Wharf.

A Jaguar spokeswoman said about Mourinho name-checking the car: "We were very happy about it, but it certainly wasn't planned in advance."
