Chelsea 4 - 2 Swansea (Barclays Premier League, 13.09.14)


José Mourinho Post Match Interview - Chelsea 4-2 Swansea, 13.09.2014

"In the first half they were the better team, but in the second half we were too strong for them."

"Diego Costa is a special player. He’s one of the best strikers we have in this moment in football. And the team is an attacking team, that creates a lot." "… for example the second goal is a brilliant collective action … Diego put the ball into the net but he’s in a good team."

"We did well (in the transfer window), first of all in deciding the profile of player we need, after that the faces, and finally buy the faces." (contented smile) "It looks simple but it’s not so simple." (smiles)

"Four matches is nothing. It’s just the beginning."

"Abramovic is a football fanatic. He’s the owner, yes. He’s a Blue, yes. But before being the owner, he was a football fan, he loves football."

Cool, calm, collected Mou.

Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other. It is the place of confidence. It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defense, and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts. It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule. Stamford Bridge, this is our home.
