Jose Mourinho cranks up pressure on Thomas Tuchel ahead of Tottenham vs Chelsea
According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has ramped up the pressure on new Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel by claiming that it is easy to win trophies at Stamford Bridge.
The 47-year-old German took over the reins at Chelsea last week after Frank Lampard was sacked following a poor start to the season. Having taken over, the new boss failed to win his first game, as Chelsea were held to a goalless draw by Wolves at home.
This was followed by an impressive win against Burnley at the weekend. However, the game against Tottenham will be Tuchel’s biggest test of his short stint at the club.
And Mourinho, in his typical manner, has already started the mind games, in an attempt to pile the pressure on his opposition, by claiming that success is easy to achieve at Chelsea.
“I don’t think it’s very difficult to coach at Chelsea because I was champion three times, Carlo Ancelotti was champion, Antonio Conte was champion. It cannot be very, very difficult because we won titles there.
“Chelsea always have great players and great squads and good coaches are happy to work with these clubs and with players who give you a very good opportunity to be successful and win titles. In my case, I was there in two different periods and I was champion in two different periods.”
