Jose Mourinho will welcome Thomas Tuchel for the first time at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tonight with Chelsea hoping to close gaps from top spot
Thomas took over Chelsea after the club got fed up of Frank Lampard’s poor run of form and decided to change the club legend for a PSG manager who got fired recently for disagreement with the Parisians’ board.
Despite having been sacked twice as Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho still boldly claims managing Chelsea shouldn’t be a hard task to any manager, not to talk of Tuchel.
“I don’t think it’s very difficult to coach at Chelsea because I was champion there three times, Carlo Ancelotti was champion, Antonio Conte was champion,” Jose Mourinho told Sun.
“Who else? It cannot be very, very difficult because we win titles there,” he continued.
“I believe Chelsea always has great players and great squads and good coaches are happy to work with these clubs and with players that give you a very good opportunity to be successful and to win titles.
“Of course a coach needs time and needs stability and it is a very good thing to feel stability.
“I’m not saying stability helps you sleep, I’m saying that stability gives you a different way of thinking and you are not just thinking about today, you are also thinking about tomorrow, you are also thinking about the future.
“That’s the way it is. It is Mr Abramovich’s club and you have to understand that it’s up to him to make his decisions. In my case, I was there in two different periods and I was champion in two different periods.
“I’m very happy to have been there before and to have that opportunity,” he added.
A win over Jose Mourinho would serve Chelsea a major boost in their quest to return to top of the table after seeing Liverpool suffer back to back losses.
