LONDON (AFP) - A starstruck Chelsea supporter had an unexpected surprise during his side's 4-1 win over Cardiff City on Saturday when he found himself sitting beside manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho was sent to the stands by referee Anthony Taylor with 20 minutes to play in the Premier League game at Stamford Bridge and clambered into a vacant seat next to Chelsea fan Sean Buxton.

Buxton quickly uploaded a picture of himself and Mourinho on his Twitter account, @Sean-Buxtonzz, alongside the caption: "OMG (oh my God) morinho (sic) is sitting next to me!!!!!" He later added: "He's taking the piss with the leg room." The picture quickly drew close to 10,000 retweets - when Twitter users share a tweet with fellow users.

Chelsea's fans swiftly commemorated the incident with a chant, singing: "Jose Mourinho, he sits where he wants!"
