At the end of a manic acceptance speech upon being named Comedian of the Year at the GQ Awards in London, Will Ferrell called out Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and urged him to “Keep playing defense, man. Keep playing defense.”
“Seven guys in the box — I love it,” Ferrell joked.

Ferrell is a longtime Chelsea fan who has attended numerous matches and club events Stateside, so there was probably some truth in his declaration of love for Mourinho’s tactics.
