Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has accused his players of being lazy despite seeing off their opponents, newly promoted Leicester, with a two goal win in Saturday’s Premier league fixture.
“I prefer to train in the morning, but this week I trained in the afternoon because this is not the best weather to play football, you get lazy. This weather pushes players to be a bit lazy, to lose a bit of tension, a bit of sharpness in your body, after that you pass slow, you do not react to the second balls, the time goes on and on, then when you wake up, it is half-time.” The Premier league manager said.
“In the first half, “Mourinho continued. the team was lazy, and I did not like that. But they improved in the second half and they won, which is the most important thing. At half-time, we had to be a bit emotional with them. I told them the way we were playing was not good enough to win the game and that we were at risk. It is impossible to play football if you do not win one second ball, it was basic but important things.
“I told them if you have the same feeling and vision I have, we are not in trouble, because we change, but if you do not agree, we are in trouble and do not win the game. In the second half, it was better we were a positive and enthusiastic, so we were too strong for them. But let’s not forget that they had a one-on-one situation against Courtois.”
