Ahead of the toughest match between Tottenham and Chelsea, which will take place today (23:55), Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho, as usual, intensified the pressure on the rival team coach Thomas Tuchel.
“I do not think it will be very difficult to coach Chelsea and work at this club in general, because I have won the title three times with Chelsea. “This team was also won by Carlo Ancelotti and Antonio Conte,” Mourinho told a pre-match press conference. “It will not be very difficult to work at Chelsea because we have won titles there.”
According to Jose, Chelsea have always had great players and “good coaches are always very happy to be able to work with such a team and with such players because the London club has good preconditions for the team to win titles.”
New Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has praised Tottenham but has denied rumors that he was a Spurs fan as a child. I really said such a thing once or twice during a football game in the yard, but then I did not even know that Tottenham was a London club. I just liked the name of this team. ” Said Tuchel.
The big plus for Chelsea in the match against Tottenham will be that Mourinho will not be able to use Harry Kane. Spurs goalie is injured and is expected to return next week.
“When Kane does not play at Tottenham, it is always easier to play against them,” Tuchel said.
