I think one of the hardest tasks in this world is trying to understand Jose Mourinho. Don’t even attempt it. The Chelsea boss has compared the club’s latest signing, Pedro Rodriguez to football legend, Diego Maradona after the latter’s impressive debut yesterday.
The 28-year old ex Barcelona forward registered his name on the score sheet on Sunday during The Blues 3-2 clash with West Bromwich at the Hawthorns.
He told Chelsea TV, “He wasn’t quite Maradona but he was close. He’s a very good player. There is always a question mark because of how many top players come to England and don’t perform immediately.
“We have examples in our club and there are lots of examples at other clubs, so it’s very nice for him to come and straight away perform the way he did.
“I expected him to perform like that because he had a good pre-season, and he played three competitive matches. He came with minutes, with intensity, so it was not a question of intensity and condition, it was a question of understanding.
“We worked tactically every day since he arrived for him to try to understand the team and for the team to try to understand what he wants and needs. It was a very good performance.”
