JOSE Mourinho has given Juan Mata the day off so he can whip his naked body through the streets of Salford.
Mourinho, who came in for criticism for substituting Mata during the Community Shield match despite having not long brought him on, said the decision had no bearing on a previous fall out from their time at Chelsea together.
Mourinho said, “This was just a tactical decision.
“I needed someone to whip naked through the streets whilst pulling a burnt out Ford Fiesta behind them and Juan was the shortest in the team, so I picked him.”
“I’m not looking to sell him but I would listen to offers for the Ford Fiesta.”
Everton are thought to be early contenders to buy the Fiesta with an exchange deal for cash plus Tom Cleverly already turned down.
