Mourinho: Players should deal with the pressure in a positive manner


Blues Manager, Jose Mourniho, has insisted his team players to accept the pressure of league title race in a positive way while giving examples of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Didier Drogba.

The former Inter striker was a part of the Seria A triumph in 2008 who reacted effectively under pressure whereas Didier Drogba helped Mourinho’s Chelsea securing two premier league titles.

The former Real Madrid manager further explained, “I like to put pressure on them,” he said.

“But you have to analyze the players you are working with. I always give Didier [Drogba] as an example – when I put real pressure on him, the animal was always coming from the dark.”

“[Zlatan] Ibrahimovic at Inter, exactly the same. When I put real pressure on him, I knew that the answer was coming. It depends on the players’ profiles. Some react in a very good way. Some don’t.”

Chelsea sits second in the Premier League table four points behind Arsenal .
