Branislav Ivanovic has described Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho as “The Perfect One”.

The Blues boss has masterminded a near-perfect start to their Premier League season, notching up 10 wins and two draws, to leave Chelsea seven points clear at the top.

And the Serbia international hailed the 51-year-old’s innate ability to get the best out of his players, managing to keep his squad relaxed despite high-pressure situations.

“They call him ‘The Special One’, but I like to refer to him as ‘The Perfect One,'” Ivanovic told FourFourTwo.

Ivanovic added: “His results speak for him.

“I think that he is the most intelligent coach – he knows what he wants. He knows when to tighten up and when to loosen up.

“He knows what to demand from the team and from an individual player, and he knows how to deal with stress situations and to relax the atmosphere. It’s a pleasure and a privilege to work with him.”

Chelsea face a test of their title credentials with in-form Tottenham Hotspur making the short trip across London to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
