Mourinho: Chelsea will still struggle to strengthen

Jose Mourinho is unconcerned by Chelsea’s transfer ban being lifted and believes his former club may struggle to strengthen their team even with a “multi-million budget”.

Frank Lampard’s Blues are free to sign players in January after their two-window ban was halved on appeal by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Mourinho’s Tottenham are currently nine points behind their top-four rivals in the battle for Champions League qualification and he said: “I’m not worried with that.

“First of all, I’m not looking to the distance we have to Chelsea. Between us and Chelsea there are still two or three teams, so you cannot look so high and so far for this moment.

“The second situation is that it’s not easy to get better players than they have, they have very good players.

“I don’t think even with a ban or even with a hypothetical multi-million budget to spend, I’m not very, very sure they can get much better players than they have.”
