Jose Mourinho: I will drop Chelsea stars and field kids if things don’t improve

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has warned senior Stamford Bridge stars that he is ready to drop them and field ‘kids’ if their season doesn’t improve according to the Daily Mirror.

The Blues currently sit in 14th place in the Premier League table having already suffered three defeats in their opening seven fixtures, the same number as the West London side suffered in the entire 2014/15 campaign.

Defensively Chelsea have struggled, only bottom of the table Sunderland have conceded more goals, and one imagines it is in this department where Mourinho would be most likely to ring the changes.

“If the season goes in one direction, that it becomes closed and we can’t win [trophies], I will go just with the kids.

“It makes no sense, when you have nothing to win, to play the older players.”

“I’ll play the players we’re waiting for instead. I can arrive in a moment where I will look to the kids and say, ‘Let’s go. Non-stop.’ I am ruthless.

“But at the moment everything is open.

“It’s difficult to win the Premier League, but possible. It’s difficult to win the Champions League, but possible. It’s difficult to win the [domestic] cups, but possible.” Mourinho added.
