He his not a Chelsea player yet, but that has not stopped Inter’s Fredy Guarin from praising the Chelsea boss, claiming the Portuguese Coach is ‘simply number one’.
The Inter midfielder has been heavily linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge in January, and the Colombia international has admitted that the Blues’ boss is the best around.
“Mourinho? He is simply number one,” Guarin told reporters.
The 27-year-old moved on to answer questions about the Nerazzurri’s season so far and next summer’s World Cup.
“Under Mazzarri we have started a new journey. With patience and hard work, I’m sure we can achieve great results.
“Qualifying for the World Cup with Brazil was a dream come true. Now we have to prepare as well as possible for the tournament proper.”
It seems a matter of when Guarin instead of when. Hopefully the deal is completed early in January so that we can get on with the business of brining players into the club.
