After having a highly productive 2012/13 season where he had many outstanding performances in key matches and scored or assisted key goals the 25-year-old has started just nine Barclays Premier League games this season since the self-proclaimed Special One returned for his second managerial spell at Stamford Bridge.
During Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Southampton the Spaniard was substituted in the 53rd minute and had an angry reaction on the bench by throwing his arms in the air and pointing to the sidelines where Jose was. Mourihno has quickly jumped to defuse the situation by claiming Mata reacted that way due to the score being 0-0. I highly doubt that was the reason of Mata’s actions, nice try Jose.
With the 2014 World Cup which will be played in Brazil coming up in the summer making the national team will be high priority for the Spaniard and with very limited playing time with the Blues he must feels that his chances of making the team is dwindling. A move away from Stamford Bridge will be best for the player if he wants to fulfill his dreams of making it to the 2014 World Cup and get some much needed playing time.
Regarding Mata’s future the Chelsea boss said:
“I want to keep him. I don’t want him to go. That is my opinion, my wish, but my door is open,” the Chelsea manager said. “The club’s door is open too so when a player wants to speak to us we are there waiting for them. If you are asking do you want the club to sell him? I don’t want to.”
Real Madrid won it’s 32nd Spanish league title and their first in four season after a 3-0 win at Athletic Bilbao on last night. The win leaves Los Blancos seven points clear of their biggest rivals FC Barcelona with two games remaining.
Goals from Gonxalo Higuain, Mesut Ozil and a 44th goal of the La Liga season for their superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Since winning the title in 2008 Madridistas had to endure watching their rivals Barcelona lift the La Liga title. The players, coaches and fans celebrated their triumph in traditional fashion at Cibeles fountain and will continue their celebrations at the Granada over the weekend.
“I won the league title in Portugal, Italy and England, but this one has been the toughest. I’ve won seven league titles overall and I know what it feels like.
“Barcelona won all their games, as befits the great team that they are. They’ve been winning to the very last day.
“They are a club with great tradition that knows we deserved to win this title.”- Jose Mourihno
Despite winning his first La Liga title Mourihno knows his club cannot lose focus as next season they’ll have to fight even harder next season if they are to retain their title.
“We have to celebrate this championship, we have to continue working after tomorrow because next season will also be tough and we have games to play still in this campaign.
It was a tough ans strenuous season for Jose Mourihno and his men and they deservedly won the title that not even their biggest rivals should envy.
“Scholes? Fantastic. Why isn’t he playing for England? It is crazy. Only in England.”
“Scholes is a great, great player. So experienced and still, for me, one of the best in the world in midfield. Manchester United are lucky to have him.”
England doesn’t deserve to have Scholes in their squad, that team is filled with players who don’t deserve to be weraing the jersey of the Three Lions. The national team is basically ran by the media not Capello, the face that Scholes has retired internationally has helped his career continue and help United aswell.
“English football excites him more than any other football in Europe and I don’t think it’s a question of if he returns to the Premier League but when,” he told the News of the World.
“I think it’s written for him to take over Manchester United in a few years. One great manager will retire and another one will take over.
“But if he was offered the England job alongside the Manchester United one in a few years I am sure he would take it. He likes the daily interaction with players too much to take on an international job alone.
“Jose and I became good friends at Inter and, from conversations we had, I know he thinks he could really do something with the England players.
“When he takes the United job, the English FA must offer him the national post as well, and from conversations we have had I think he would take it, in fact I know he would.”
With all due respect i hope this never comes to pass, i admire Mourihno somewhat but sometimes he can be a bit unbearable. I don’t want a manager who thinks he’s bigger than the club and with Jose Mourihno’s history he always puts himself in that light.
Say No To Mourihno!
