Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho on ‘fantastic’ Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas’ vision, selling Romelu Lukaku [Video]
In Holland for their Eurotrip pre-season, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho sat down for an in-depth exclusive interview with Sky Sports.
Mourinho spoke openly and effusively about his summer signings, in particular Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas.
Mourinho described Costa as ‘a fantastic player’, who he says his new teammates have been surprised by, such is his technical ability, aside from his team effort and never-say-die attitude.
As for Fabregas, Mourinho described the Catalan as ‘a player who sees things quicker than the majority’, hailing his vision and passing qualities.
Moving on to outgoing players, Mourinho said he and Chelsea wished Romelu Lukaku well after the Belgian left for Everton, while dismissing the notion that he had a fractured relationship with the striker.
Mourinho couldn’t resist a thinly veiled dig at Lukaku though, saying ‘he didn’t want to compete with players of a top dimension, he wanted to play day-in, day-out; and that’s fine’.
On Petr Cech, Mourinho said his feeling is that the Czech will stay, but didn’t exactly dismiss the notion that he could leave either…
