Mourinho’s men have already travelled to Bangkok where they beat Thailand All-Stars 1-0 and at the beginning of this month took on Sydney FC in Australia, also winning 1-0. Chelsea are enjoying a short break before playing non-league outfit Kingstonian on July 13. They then fly to the USA to compete in The International Champions Cup – taking part in some of the most exciting pre-season friendlies against New York Red Bulls, Barcelona and PSG.
