    Premier League - Mourinho medal sold at auction

    Eurosport - Thu, 25 Feb 2010
    A Premier League winners' medal thrown into the crowd by Jose Mourinho has sold at auction for £16,800.

    The former Chelsea boss won the medal after guiding the Blues to the title in the 2005-06 season.

    He jettisoned it into the Chelsea section following their 3-0 win over Manchester United moments after throwing another medal and his jacket to jubilant fans.

    At the time Mourinho said: "The medal was for everybody but I think the person in the crowd who got the medal is a lucky guy who goes home with a fantastic memory - or goes to eBay and makes a fortune."

    The first medal was sold for £21,600 in 2008, although even that princely sum was overshadowed by the amount paid for another piece of sporting memorabilia at the auction on Wednesday.

    A pair of boots worn by Blackpool great Stanley Matthews in the 1953 FA Cup final fetched £38,400, far exceeding the estimate of between £6,000 and £8,000 at Bonhams Sporting and Golf Memorabilia sale in Chester.
