Jose Mourinho warns his players that nobody is untouchable

Published 1 Comments

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has fired a warning to his under-performing stars.

The Portuguese boss has seen his side stutter so far in the Premier League - they currently sit in 15th place with eight points after seven games.

And the 52-year-old has warned his players that nobody is untouchable as football is about 'today' not 'yesterday'.

As per talkSPORT, the Chelsea boss said: "Untouchables in football, only consistency can give you that status. You have to be a fantastic player, but you have to be consistent.

"In this moment we have fantastic players, the players that gave us the title last season. But football is about today, it's not about yesterday. In football, you have to be consistent in your performance, in your emotion.

"To be a winner you don't need to win all the time, but to be a winner you must have a strong mentality every game, every day. At this moment, I don't have untouchables."


The Blues turn their attentions to the Champions League in midweek with a game against Mourinho's former club FC Porto on Tuesday evening. 

The Stamford Bridge club picked up three points in their opening game against Maccabi Tel-Aviv, and will be hoping to put themselves in the driving seat with a win in Portugal.

Porto would be considered Chelsea's main rivals for top spot in Group G and a win at the Estadio do Dragao would put the Blues in a great position to qualify for the knockout stages.

Diego Costa is available for selection in Europe and should return to the starting line-up tomorrow night, having missed the last two domestic matches due to a violent conduct ban.

The return of last season's top goalscorer will add a different dimension to an attack that was once again below par during the 2-2 draw at Newcastle United.
