Jose Mourinho hits out at Chelsea’s Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah
The Chelsea manager was not impressed by the pair's performances at Shrewsbury Town
Jose Mourinho has criticised the performances of Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah in Chelsea’s 2-1 League Cup win over Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday.
The duo were both handed starting spots but struggled to make an impact in the game at Greenhous Meadow.
Schurrle was a late substitute against Manchester United at the weekend, while Salah did not feature at all for the Blues in the Premier League clash.
And Mourinho was disappointed that the pair failed to impress against the League Two side.
“I expect players to give me problems,” Mourinho said. “I love problems. But a lot of them didn’t and they’ve made it easy to choose my team for Saturday.
“If players who played 90 minutes two days ago were fantastic I expect people who are not playing a lot to raise the level to create me problems. They didn’t create me big problems.”
Asked if Schurrle and Salah had disappointed him in particular, Mourinho responded: “Yes.”
