Chelsea boss Jose Mouinho – the special one, has revealed his admiration for tennis ace Novak Djokovic. The world number one tennis player was recently watched by the Chelsea boss at the ATP World Tour finals in London – which Djokovic went on to win.
Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic is a Chelsea fan and has made his support vocal in the past, as Chelsea feature two of Novak’s countrymen, Nemanja Matic and Branislav Ivanovic.
The Chelsea gaffer believes that football can learn a lot from other sports and also revealed his love for tennis.
Talking to Portuguese press A Bola, the Chelsea boss said, “”It is an amazing sport, footballers have much more to learn from them. A man alone in court , with all the responsibility on the shoulders … They are great champions. As a football coach I learn a lot from them.”
“I have a passion and respect so great at tennis you want should tie, which is not possible. I was probably the proudest man when Djokovic shook my hand.”
Like Novak winning the ATP World Tour Finals in London, Chelsea would also look to carry on their form which has been scintillating so far.
Chelsea has not lost a match this season, and a favorites to go unbeaten, whilst topping the league. Although Jose Mourinho has rubbished talks of a unbeaten streak, the Portugese could be lured by this great achievement, only reserved for few teams.
Chelsea have already displayed sheer class of brilliance and with Diego Costa the final piece of the Chelsea puzzle, the Blue look to be on a cruise.
Chelsea meanwhile won 2-1 against rivals Liverpool, wherein the blues came back to win the match after conceding an early goal. Gary Cahill scored in the 14th minute and Diego Costa scored his complimentary goal in the 67th minutes, as the Blues completed a comfortable victory at Anfield.
After the International break, Chelsea take on West Bromich Albion at Stamford Bridge, which they would be looking to win and distance themselves from the rest of the pack.
As the scenario stands, Chelsea are already sitting comfortably with 29 points and with the busy month of December coming, the Blues would be hoping to bag as many points as possible.
