Jose Mourinho has been under a lot of pressure this week after having a spat with his medical team. He was even spotted abusing Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro during the season opener against Swansea City where the Blues drew 2-2 with Swansea.

Ahead of Chelsea’s high profile Premier League match against last season’s runners up Manchester City, the press conference from Mourinho was highly anticipated.

Mourinho seemed to have a calmer attitude in the presser. He stated that he has a fantastic relationship with the medical team and media is just overreacting with the current issue. He even said that he praises them a lot like no other Chelsea manager ever did.

He said, ‘First of all I want to say I have a fantastic medical department led by Dr Paco Biosca, I have a good relationship with them.’

‘They tell me they have never been praised as much as they have done by me in the last couple of years.’

He said that Dr. Eva Carneiro and Jon Fearn will not sit on the bench during match against Manchester City but that does not mean that, they will not be there in the future. He said that, being the manager, he has to take big decisions which everyone may not like but he does what is best for the team.

‘Jon Fearn and Dr Carneiro will not be on the bench on Sunday but that doesn’t mean they cannot be in the future.’

He also said that Oscar may miss the big clash due to a knock during training. Courtois is the another absentee due to suspension.

‘Oscar is a doubt, he had a little injury in training. Courtois is suspended, apart from that it’s all good.’

He also said that, Chelsea fans shouldn’t be worried about spending less in the transfer market and said that the window is still open and if he needs anyone, he can still get him.

‘If we are not top of the league in terms of the spenders, people don’t need to be worried.’

He also talked about his new contract and expressed his delight to commit his future at the club.

‘The board just gave me a new contract and we have great stability.’
