Jose Mourinho has paid Brendan Rodgers a huge compliment as he prepares to go head-to-head with him. Mourinho’s Tottenham host Rodgers’ Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday. And the Foxes could move above Spurs in the table with victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Rodgers was an academy coach at Chelsea when Mourinho was in charge at Stamford Bridge. And, asked if the job Rodgers has done at Leicester has impressed him,
Jose Mourinho said “I’m not impressed, I know how good he is. When I met him as a young coach in the academy, and coming to join us in the first team and sharing with us many moments, I understood that he was a young guy with a great future. So anything he’s doing in his career is not a surprise for me, not at all. He’s very talented, he was and probably still is a guy who likes to study, learn and improve. He’s creative, he knows what he wants. He’s a very good coach. Period. He’s a very good coach so it’s not a surprise for me.”
