Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that losing their opening game against New York Red Bulls is actually much better than winning it with a margin of ’10-0′. Chelsea lost their first pre-season game in the International Champions Cup against MLS side New York Red Bulls. Loic Remy and Eden Hazard were the only two Blues players whos name featured in the score sheet.

Chelsea had almost fielded their first XI but still the Premier League champions went down against ‘minnows’ New York Red Bulls. Newly recruited custodian Asmir Begovic started the game ahead of regular Thibaut Courtois.

After the game, Mourinho spoke to reporters saying: “If we had won 10-0, that wouldn’t have been any good. We needed a test and we received one.

“They were sharp, quick, high motivation, very happy to play against us and they gave us a better match then we thought.

“I am the manager of the best team of England. We have top players, there are no fragilities.

“We have done 11 sessions in six days. We trust these players. We play this team 10 times, we win nine, but the second half was a disaster.”

The Premier League giants are scheduled to meet French champions Paris Saint-Germain in Charlotte on Saturday. The Blues will look forward to coming back strongly and hopefully learn from their mistakes in their opening game. As suggested by the Portuguese manager ‘it was a test for them’.
