Jose Mourinho Heaps Pressure On Leicester City Ahead Of Important Clash

Jose MourinhoChelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes Leicester City can take everyone by surprise by winning the premier league this season. Leicester city that currently lie ahead with 17 points over Chelsea ahead of their showdown on Monday night football

The Portuguese who had previously doubted Leicester city title charge now thinks they are capable of claiming the coveted premier league title “Well, first of all they deserve to be where they are,” said Mourinho in his pre-match conference. “Let’s be honest. I said a couple of weeks ago I don’t believe they can be champions. Maybe I have to think twice before saying that again. One thing is to be top of the league in September after a beautiful start; another thing is to be top of the league in December. That is a completely different story. If they get result after result, it is because they can win the title. It would be something magnificent, it would be something to impress the football world, but sometimes these things can happen and why not happen with them? They are there because they are doing magnificently well and we are where we are because we are doing badly.”

Interestingly Mourinho who replaced current Leicester city boss, Claudio Ranieri as the manager of Chelsea in 2004 heaped praises on the Leicester city manager, He added: “If you can give an award for the first six months of competition, everyone is miles away from him.”  Claudio Ranieri recently in an interview tipped Jose Mourinho’s men to finish in the top four despite their miserable start to the season. Mourinho said: “That is nice from him. Nobody has doubts that he does not forget his time at Chelsea, everybody that is at this club for a certain period of time likes this club. I think Ranieri is showing that nice feeling he has for the club, but I also believe in what he says.”
