Jose Mourinho is known for his mind games and taking digs at opposition managers, and it just seems that the former Chelsea boss has begun his craft yet again.

Chelsea welcome Tottenham to Stamford Bridge on February 22, and Mourinho has taken a slight dig at Blues boss Frank Lampard, while also praising John Terry.

Mourinho hailed Terry’s slow approach to management but took a dig at ex footballers who quickly jump into management.

“Some players, unlike in the past when you needed to prove yourself to get a job, in this moment you get a job without proving anything,” the Tottenham manager told Sky Sports.

“So John could have chosen that way. Waiting for a big call. But he didn’t choose that way.

“He went the difficult way but probably the more stable way, being an assistant. Going to the Championship. Coming to the Premier League.

“Taking time to reach what he wants to reach. It will arrive. So I am really proud of the way he is doing things.”
