Jose Mourinho has been speaking this morning about Juan Mata and the transfer movement over the past week, and had a few details about how the move came about. Here are a few quotes from the presser on the subject:
Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) January 24, 2014
Mourinho on Mata: 'Sooner rather than later things will be finalised.' #CFC— Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) January 24, 2014
Mourinho on Mata: 'He is a fantastic player. In spite of not playing much for us, I still think he could be important for us.' #CFC— Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) January 24, 2014
Mourinho: 'The offer we have received we feel is the right offer for the quality of player.' #CFC— Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) January 24, 2014
Mourinho: 'He was fantastic for Chelsea, and Chelsea were fantastic for him.' #CFC— Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) January 24, 2014
Like Mourinho, most Chelsea fans will be wishing Mata the best in Manchester. It's a sad day to see him going, but at least he'll get on the pitch consistently in Manchester.
