Jose Mourinho opens up about the future of his former club Chelsea as well as the form of Tammy Abraham. Mourinho guided Roma to a 2-1 win over Leicester in the Europa Conference League and will face Feyenoord in the final. The club has not won a European final since beating Blackpool in the final of the 1972 Anglo-Italian Cup.
“It’s a difficult moment and you can even feel it at the football level because they have lost that level of excellence and stability. But this is at the moment, you know,” Jose Mourinho said about his former club Chelsea’s future. “If you ask me do I have someone I would like to take over my Chelsea? Then yes I have, but I close my mouth. I just know the club has reached such a level that it doesn’t matter who it’s with, Chelsea will always be Chelsea. Chelsea will always be. And my house will always be 200 meters from the stadium and I want to keep listening to the sound of happiness and success and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be like that.”
“Against Leicester, he was absolutely amazing and at this moment I joke and say ‘I refuse to praise him because he can always do better. He knows how happy I am. He knows how much I love the kid and the player and I’m proud of what we are doing I’m so happy for Tammy,” Jose Mourinho said about Tammy Abraham. “We have got into this situation where I demand a lot from him because I know he can do amazingly well. I don’t think it’s an easy decision for a young player to leave his club, his house, his city, his country and to leave the Premier League which is of course a competition that when a player is in its hard to leave.”
