Also on sale is the second medal thrown into the crowds by Jos Mourinho following Chelsea's 3-0 win against Manchester United at the 2005-6 Premier League - at the game which clinched Chelsea the Premier League title for the second successive season.
The Portuguese former Chelsea manager was presented with the second medal minutes after he had thrown his first winner's medal, along with his blazer, into the spectators at Stamford Bridge.
