Turning Fantasy Into Reality

Spurs The "Special One" may have crushed a million housewife hearts when he left Chelsea, but his ability to influence our national game remains undimmed. Rumours abounded over the weekend that Mourinho was about to pluck plucky Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas for his Inter Milan team. Yet the Portugeezer has blamed his fantasy football selection for the rumour, insisting that — despite picking Jenas for his (salaried) entry in the Telegraph's Fantasy League — in the real world he has no intention of signing the player. Indeed, Jenas' poor form resulted in Mourinho replacing him in December with Shaun Wright-Phillips. With the line between fantasy and reality blurring, it surely can't be long before Fergie, Wenger, Benitez et al are studying our Londonist United squad for tips. (Image / Andy Wilkes)
