Blues produce enormous list of demands for away trip
Being incredibly sophisticated gentleman with delicate culinary sensibilities, John Terry and his Chelsea side have refused to let the five star Opera Plaza hotel in Romania cook for the side ahead of their Champions League tie with CFR Cruj tonight.
Full time Chelsea chef Nick Broad, pictured above, will instead prepare meals that do not contain icky animal cooking fats and yucky vegetable oils. The folks at the posh hotel aren’t impressed with the Blues or the 35-page list of demands they issued:
“Then they went through the whole kitchen and threw everything out that isn’t organic.
“This is a good hotel. We’re used to stars and VIPs but this lot think they’re royalty.”
There could be sensible nutrional reasons for avoiding the foreign cuisine, but perhaps the well remunerated players shunned it when they realised the most popular Romanian meal, sărmăluţe cu mămăligă, is known as a “poor man’s dish”.
