Jose Mourinho has said that he would put Tony Pulis in charge of a club if the choice was his.
The Chelsea boss has always praised Pulis, who is currently in charge at Premier League rivals West Brom.
The Blues, who have won only two of their opening eight Premier League games and lost four, are currently 16th in table and are level on points with Pulis’ Baggies side, who also have eight points.
“If I was in charge of a club, (Pulis) is the first manager I would contact,” Mourinho said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.
57-year old Pulis spent eight years at Stoke, guiding them to the top flight, before leaving the Britannia and saving Crystal Palace from relegation in 2013. He then left the Eagles in the summer of 2014 to join West Brom.
The Welshman has never been relegated from the top flight.
“He has only ever had to coach teams who have had to survive, scrape results and find stability,” Mourinho said.
“The numbers when it comes to Tony and his record are incredible.”
