— Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) September 13, 2013
Jose Mourinho says he likes and trusts Chelsea star Juan Mata.
The Spaniard has been on the fringes since Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues’ player of the season two years running has been linked with moves to Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona amid suggestions that he’s not a ‘Mourinho player.
But the Special One refuted those suggestions in his press conference ahead of the game against Everton.
He said: “He is a player I like a lot and trust, and he will fight for positions in the team like everybody else.”
However, rumours coming from the club suggest that Oscar, Eden Hazard and Willian is Mourinho’s preferred attacking midfield trio.
