Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has revealed he always knew Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers had a great future during their time at Chelsea.
Rodgers was an academy coach when Mourinho was Chelsea manager in the mid-2000s and the pair have maintained a good relationship.
“I’m not impressed, I know how good he is,” Mourinho said.
“When I met him as a young coach in the academy, and coming to join us in the first team and sharing with us many moments, I understood that he was a young guy with a great future.
“So anything he’s doing in his career is not a surprise for me, not at all. He’s very talented, he was and probably still is a guy who likes to study, learn and improve. He’s creative, he knows what he wants.
“He’s a very good coach. Period. He’s a very good coach so it’s not a surprise for me.”
Should Rodgers be given the Chelsea job in future?
