Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho is obviously pleased with the array of talents he has at his disposal as the English Premier League resumes this weekend. The charismatic manager has in recent weeks spoken of how pleased he is with the signings the Blues have made this summer.
After signing Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa, Filipe Luis, and club legend, Didier Drogba coupled with the return of highly rated players who were formerly on loan such as goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois and defender, Kurt Zouma, the Portuguese is optimistic Chelsea will do well this season. The outspoken manager is also confident that Chelsea can dominate the Premier League for the next decade.
Here’s what he told reporters after watching his side defeat Real Sociedad 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the club’s final pre-season match:
“We have the squad that we want to have,’
“It is a squad for tomorrow, for next season and also a squad with big possibilities for the next five or 10 years with so many young people.
“So, I like my squad very much. There is no manager in the world that has the perfect squad. No manager that says ‘My squad is perfect’ or couldn’t improve in certain positions.
“The only thing I can say is that I like very much the squad. The club was fantastic because it gave me the three targets I was asking, in the left-back, a midfield player and a striker.
“In fact, it gave me two strikers because Didier is also back. So we have the squad that we want to have, we don’t say it’s perfect, we don’t say it’s the best, we say we like very much our squad.”
