Jose Mourinho was delighted after what he saw a one more “complete” display made Chelsea after they were able to defeat Schalke 5-0 on Tuesday, in a win that impressed sportsbook software services and fans all over the world.
The Blues clinched a top position in Group G of the UEFA Champions League as goals by John Terry, Willian, as well as an own goal made by Jan Kirchhoff were able to put the team in complete control of the game before half-time got underway.
Fans who were watching the game saw that the same spark was clearly missing in the game’s second period, but the thrashing in Germany was finished by Didier Drogba and Ramires, who were playing as substitutes, and did a great job on the pitch.
“They played a fantastic match,” said the Portuguese, and the football world cannot contest his words in any way. “At this moment, this team is very mature and very confident.
“To win 5-0 away in the Champions League is not normal, playing away in Germany it is even less normal.
“The performance was very impressive. Every player individually and the team as a whole was very complete.”
The manager also stressed that he will try to clinch a win when his side takes on Sporting Lisbon at home, but he’s able to rest a few of his men for that match after his side made sure that they will move on as the winners of the pool, but the team’s fans still want to see the team be in top condition for their next match.
“We are defending well because we are defending with 11 players,” added Mourinho. “We are attacking well because we are very confident in ourselves. We are a good team.
“Obviously, we can lose and maybe a bad result is waiting for us, but we are playing very well, we have big self-belief and the team is very confident.
“It’s also very important for us to have one match against Sporting where we don’t need the points, especially in December, which is a very busy month.”
Fans all over the planet were taken aback when they saw the performance done by the Blues in Germany, and they hope to see the team continue to play this way in future matches. Sportsbook software services can see that Mourinho is doing a great job as Chelsea’s manager, and they hope that he keeps it up.
