Matic contradicts Mourinho over Chelsea strikers

Nemanja Matic has come to the defence of the Chelsea strike force, ESPN has reported, but in the process the midfielder has contradicted comments made by his manager, Jose Mourinho.


Nemanja Matic


Mourinho has said repeatedly this season that the Blues are lacking firepower and was particularly critical following Wednesday’s 3-1 Champions League defeat by Paris Saint-Germain.


But Matic has said in the new issue of FourFourTwo that to dismiss the merits of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o is to reveal a lack of understanding about the game.


“People who say Chelsea don't have any good strikers don't know anything about football,” Matic said. “We have three very good strikers. People who say this cannot have watched football.


“We have a lot of good players at Chelsea - Oscar and Willian, too, for example. We are strong in all positions, and this is why it is so good to be part of this team.”


Matic returned to Stamford Bridge in January, three years after Chelsea sold him to Benfica. The 25-year-old Serbia international cost Chelsea £21m but he was unavailable for the defeat in France after playing in Europe for Benfica earlier this season.

And what do you expect him to say as a player,do you want him to talk down his team mates? Whatever Matic said was his public opinion,which in truth may not be his true private opinion,as regarding Chelsea striker crises.Can he tell us how many top teams in the premier league/Europe that all the total goals from all of their top strikers is just around 15 or below 20 goals in all competitions? No matter whatever contributions a striker makes in his team without his own good number of goals he can never be considered a real top striker,no never!
