Mourinho prepares for backlash from several players.

Posted on July 18, 2013 by Tony

In an attempt to further unsettle Wayne Rooney and try to force the issue of his transfer to Chelsea from United, Jose Mourinho has inadvertently made comments that should worry a number of his own players:

“Any player that wants to go to the World Cup, if they are a second choice in their club they are in trouble. They are in trouble.”

Based on that information just what might Cahill be thinking as his position is far from guaranteed with Ivanovitch, Terry and Luis standing against him, what of Frank Lampard who will hardly be a first choice with so many younger players ahead of him and with a further two or three purchased. what of Fernando Torres who Rooney will take the place of or Mata whose position is already in jeopardy, the same can be said of Luis, Ramirez and Oscar who will all hope to play for the hosts. Lukaku will hope to make the Belgian squad as will Hazard, in fact just about every member of his 25 man squad will want to play at the World cup and they cannot all be first choice.

Mourinho is of course talking rubbish, if England do finally make it to the finals Rooney will ,as has happened before, be chosen even if injured, as long as he can hop on one leg that will do for any England coach.

The signing of Rooney by Chelsea is a strange one for me and could offer more problems than solutions in the greater scheme of things, and let’s face it none of their superstar purchases have ever really worked out for them.
