Mourinho: Mata needs to show why he should play
Jose Mourinho has urged Juan Mata to show him why he should be starting for Chelsea.
‘He trained this morning and my assistant that was training with them told me he trained very, very hard. Tuesday of course he plays from the beginning against Swindon. The people who didn’t play today are going to play. Juan Mata and David Luiz and Michael Essien, Bertrand, and Azpilicueta. And I hope he tells me on the pitch, “You are wrong, I am the best and I have to play every game.”
‘The story doesn’t play. If the story , because I won two titles here, because I never lost a match here in the Premier League, nobody would criticise me but people criticise me. The past is the past and you have to be judged on what you do now. I gave Juan the chance to play from the beginning against Aston Villa, against Everton.”
Mourinho told reporters yesterday that he prefers Oscar over Mata in the number 10 spot & that he sees the Spaniard as a good option on the right wing.
