Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho has fired his first shot at his counterpart Thomas Tuchel, insisting that it’s not as hard to coach at Stamford Bridge as everyone makes it out to be.
Chelsea will take on Spurs on Thursday in the London Derby with Mourinho, the club’s most successful manager ever, seemingly doing his utmost best to increase the pressure on Tuchel.
‘The Blues’ haven’t been in the Premier League title picture for a while now, with former coaches Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard both failing to secure anything better than a Uefa Champions League qualification, and now the job has been left to Tuchel.
“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,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“It cannot be very, very difficult because we win titles there. 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 is a very good thing to feel stability,” concluded Mourinho.
