Jose Mourinho has issued a stern warning to against League One outfit Bradford City, stating that it would be a ‘disgrace’, if they went onto to lose to them. He went onto add that the Premier League title challenge will not reduce the importance of the FA Cup.
However, he did admit that a few changes would be made to team. The changes would see Kurt Zouma start in place of John Terry. Mourinho said the best thing to happen for their title struggle would be elimination from all competitions.
He said, “To help the title race, the best thing is to lose against Bradford and to lose against Liverpool and to lose against Paris Saint-Germain [in the Champions League] and to play only Premier League until the end of the season.”
“The other day a coach of a big team was knocked out of the cup and he was saying, ‘Good, very good. This is perfect for us. Now we can focus on the other competitions.’ If I lose against Bradford, I don’t say that. I say it’s a disgrace.”
Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah might start today as Mourinho suggested that they will be a part of their plans.Published 24 Jan 2015, 17:58 IST
