While Jose Mourinho is now the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, all the headlines today have been about his old club Chelsea and their transfer ban news.

Chelsea had previously been slapped with a two-window transfer ban that would see them miss out on new signings last summer and in January 2020.

However, it was announced today that the Blues had seen the decision overturned, meaning that can now make additions to their squad in the new year.

Chelsea are currently nine points ahead of Tottenham in fourth, a rather large gap for the Lilywhites to overcome if they are to secure a Champions League spot for next season.

Mourinho was asked in his press conference today whether Chelsea, a Spurs top-four rival, having their ban overturned was bad news for the North London club.

However, Jose simply stated that he is not concentrating on Chelsea or the gap between Spurs and the Blues.

He said (Football London): “I’m not worried with that. First of all I’m not looking to Chelsea and the distance from them. Between us and Chelsea are still two or three teams, Wolves and United, so we cannot look so high and so far in this moment. So I’m not looking to them at all.

“The second situation for me is that it is not easy to get better players than they have. They have very good players. Even with the ban and a hypothetical multi-million budget to spend I’m not very, very sure they can get much better players than they have.”
