Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma claims that Jose Mourinho is totally different manager behind closed doors.
The French player has revealed that the Special One is always close to his players, trying to explain them everything and what is even more important he is always ready to listen to them. Zouma has praised Mourinho’s intelligence and acuteness.
Chelsea player has recalled that the presence of Mourinho at Stamford Bridge was the most important reason why he decided to join Chelsea.
Zouma told Le Parisien :
“That’s when he is on the sidelines but he never tears strips off us,”
“It wouldn’t be any use – we are already rock bottom after a defeat. And then he is incredibly intelligent – he knows everything. I have never seen him get an opposing team wrong. I don’t know how he does it.”
“Every goal we concede, he will have shown it to us before on video. Then he will say to us: ‘I warned you.’ He leaves nothing to chance – it is really the best. But sometimes in football, there are times when everything goes wrong.”
“After defeats, there is a strange atmosphere in the dressing room,”
”There is complete silence – no one opens their mouth. Mourinho has taught us to hate defeat. We are steeped in that culture so it hard for us.”
