Premier League

I don't need any GPS and tactics all I need is Drogba and Essien in my team

The former Chelsea FC team coach Jose Mourinho has work tirelessly in the various leagues that he has being in charge. He has been able to work with teams in Portugal, Italy, Spain and England where he made most of his name.

As experience as he is there no need to demand for a tactical board and a lot of resources. Mourinho, since leaving Chelsea after winning the 2014/15 Premier League, has struggled for success in his spells at both Manchester United and Tottenham.

Okoth believes the manager has not had the kind of players that assured him of success, especially at his first stint at Chelsea. “For Mourinho, I think he is missing the right players that would understand his philosophy and implement them with absolute efficiency," Okoth told Goal. It was the Portuguese mentor who lured Essien to Stamford Bridge for a hefty £26 million from Lyon in 2005 - the highest fee paid for an African transfer.


The mantra which has been with Mourinho all this while makes it clear that his performance is not on any bases like going in for everything that will help the work become very easy for them.

He insisted that the players he needed was just two a Center back and a central midfielder. At his days with Chelsea and other teams he was focused on the players being Drogba and Essien who played their heart out for him when he started his high profiled career with Chelsea.

It is very true that coaches will never get all their expectations and should make sure they build some trust and confidence around certain players to help them. And the 25-year-old who is also the club's second most expensive transfer, admitted he is still in contact with Mourinho. Essien told The Sun: "He was the person who put his faith in me and did a lot for me.

We stay in touch though we don't talk about football that much. "He's a good man who does not forget people he cares about and he sends good luck texts before games.
