Jose Mourinho is unsure why Arsenal have brought Dani Ceballos to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
“Ceballos, I think they have other Ceballos’ in the squad,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports.
“He’s a good player but I think they have other Ceballos’.
“When I see Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Ceballos, they can play in different positions on the pitch and very similar characteristics.”
Unai Emery praised Ceballos’ mentality before the weekend, he said: “Ceballos’ mind is very strong.
“His mentality. Last Sunday when he received a big kick on his ankle I thought ‘oh, it’s broken’.
“But after, on Monday, he was training – (he said) ‘I’m fine and want to train’. He is showing us every day his ambition, his hunger is big. I think we need players like this.”
