Jose Mourinho has accepted an offer to be Roma boss next season, but that hasn’t stopped him going on TalkSport to keep up his punditry duties.
Today they were asking him about his second spell at Chelsea, including the controversial decision to sell Kevin de Bruyne.
Clearly it was a mistake in hindsight, but as Mourinho insists, it made sense at the time.
In quotes from the radio show carried by Absolute Chelsea, he points out that he started the Belgian in the first game of the season, and after the second was confronted by him with demands for more minutes.
Clearly Mourinho wasn’t prepared to offer those kind of guarantees, and decided to green-light a move to Wolfsburg.
Let’s be honest – not too many Blues fans were complaining at the time. Now, of course, it looks a terrible call. But in this case, we have some sympathy with Mourinho, who saw the talent but didn’t want a disruptive influence hanging around all season.
