No more excuses, Jose! Gullit says Mourinho must win trophies this season

by Mark Bassey


Former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit, has said that current boss Jose Mourinho, must win silveware this season.

Mourinho failed to win any trophy, after he returned to Stamford Bridge last season, but has added Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Felipe Luis.

“Jose is not used to being without trophies,” Gullit, who is now a Sky Sports pundit, said. “He wants to win something and this year it has to happen. With the squad they have, they need to win something.

“That’s what Jose wants and the reason he bought these players. He didn’t have the striker he wanted and now he has it. Now it’s time to produce.

“He wanted a player who could do what Didier Drogba did for him. He was looking for a player with the same style: powerful and strong, with good technique, someone who can hustle the opposition.

“Diego Costa is that player. Can he do it in the Premier League? We are going to see. Fabregas hustles and works very hard. He makes sure to keep the opposition busy and can score goals.”

Gullit added that with the arrivals of this players, Chelsea have a stronger squad than last campaign and expects Mourinho’s men to play better football this time around.

“Chelsea are stronger and it is a team that could do really well,” the Dutchman said. “It would be a surprise if they did not do well and with the players they have you can play attractive football. The thing is Man City have improved, Manchester United want to do well and Liverpool have bought a lot of players. All the other teams have improved.”
