Chelsea attacking midfielder Oscar has heaped praise on manager Jose Mourinho, calling him ‘one of the world’s top coaches’, Sky
Mourinho, who won the league title twice in his first spell with Chelsea, has also triumphed in Portugal, Italy and Spain, and is one of the few managers who have won the Champions League with two different clubs.
Oscar, who joined Chelsea last summer after leaving his native Brazil, is delighted to be working under Mourinho. He said: “It’s been great to work with Jose Mourinho. He is one of the best coaches in the world. We have seen he has already had a lot of success at Chelsea and I am just really happy to have the opportunity to work with him.
“You can already see the influence he has had on us during the first few games and I hope the team will be able to continue to grow under him, as I will also be able to grow as a player. As early as pre-season we could see the belief with which he works.”
Mourinho has made a solid start to his second spell in charge, enjoying home wins over Hull City and Aston Villa, and overseeing a 0-0 draw at Manchester United. Over both of his spells as boss, he has lost just nine out of a total of 117 Premier League matches.
