Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed he will be present for the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening.
Mourinho chose to stay away from Stamford Bridge for Chelsea’s 4-2 first leg win over Bayern after he was handed a two-match touchline ban by Uefa.
But he said: “I’ve decided what I will do on Tuesday.
“I’ll be somewhere in the stadium. I will be in the stands, in a box, or maybe in the VIP tribune.”
Chelsea are in the driving seat after the opening leg, but Mourinho warned that his team will find it tough in Germany.
“I see it will be a difficult game. If they score early or if they score late, it will be a difficult game for us,” he said.
“It was very difficult for me [last week], very difficult. I wouldn’t say it turned out harder than I thought it would be – but it was still hard enough.
“Of course in the days before you prepare the game well and give everything you have to try to prepare the team for every situation.
“You have to coach the team, you have to coach the assistants, you have to coach everybody around you because you are not there. That part is fine. It’s enjoyable.
“But the other part, when you can’t be directly involved in the match, is difficult. But it’s only one more, only one more game.”
Bayern Munich coach Felix Magath has been boosted by Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach, a win which extends their lead over Schalke at the top of the Budlesliga to three points.
“We have not only defended, but extended our advantage over Schlake to three points and that will comfort us, even in the Champions League,” he said.
“We can now go into that game with added self-confidence and are convinced we can knock Chelsea out.”
