Jose Mourinho is once again making waves here in the Football Transfer Tavern, according to the Sunday Telegraph.
The Chelsea boss has claimed that three of his current stars, Oscar, Eden Hazard and Andre Schurrle need to get their acts together.
Whilst the Blues trio have been impressive at times this season, they certainly need to add more to the team and Mourinho has made no secret of that.
The Special One claimed: “Would you lose any of those if they don’t have the ability to improve?
“I think they will stay. Schürrle had a good season? Not bad, but next season must be better. [Mohamed] Salah, Oscar, Willian, Hazard, all of them are in an age of improvement.”
Hazard has of course been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge almost constantly since the January transfer window and we think those rumours will just persist.
Oscar is certainly one of the players who has tailed off this season – and we think the World Cup is playing on his mind.
Schurrle meanwhile looks like having a long future at Chelsea, certainly willing to sacrifice himself for the team – unlike the aforementioned Hazard, according to Mourinho.
Do you think the Chelsea stars can offer more next season? Let us know your thoughts below.
