The Special One dashed away from Chelsea’s end of season awards ceremony after receiving a phone call from his wife saying police had arrived to take the dog away. Officials feared the dog had been taken abroad, then back to Britain, without jabs.

Mourinho – sore loser as ever – released the dog onto the streets from his Belgravia home rather than allow the police to take it. He was allegedly involved in a confrontation with a policeman.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “A 44-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of obstructing police and was taken to a west London police station. He subsequently received a caution for obstructing police.” The spokesman said the dog was to be seized for alleged offences under the Animal Health Act of 1981 and the Rabies Order of 1974.
