MOST COMMENTED

Jose Mourinho has hinted that he would be willing to give Fernando Torres a chance to prove himself at Chelsea, even though the Spaniard has been linked with a move to Napoli, with coveted striker Edinson Cavani headed the other way. "He [Torres] is a Chelsea player with a contract. He's more than happy to stay and work hard, and I think he deserves respect from me, especially, and the club,” Mourinho said. “That respect starts by speaking with him face-to-face and deciding what is the best for all of us. If the best for all of us is for Fernando to stay, let's help him and try and get the best out of him."

During his second press conference as Chelsea coach, Mourinho also reassured reporters that he is exactly where he wants to be. "As I said before, I am where I want to be,” the Portuguese said. “You tell me now every job in the football world at this table, I would choose my job. So I have the job I want to have."

Mourinho also advised Manchester United’s unsettled striker Wayne Rooney that he should also go where he feels happiest: "I think he [Rooney] is at a fantastic age for a player: maturity, big experience, still young,” Mourinho said. “It's up to him and what he wants, what makes him happy. He's a little bit like me: he doesn't need one more pound in his contract. One more cup won't make a different. Be happy.”
