Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has every reason to be pleased with his team, as they secured the 2014-15 Premier League title.
He expressed his confidence in his current squad by revealing he will let Manchester United and Manchester City make expensive signings, according to The Guardian.
“I’m happy with the way that we are doing things. I am happy with the challenge of fighting against this power. I told the players that we are the same team and the others are not the same team,” the Chelsea boss said.
The Blues have made very few signings, and they are not being as aggressive as clubs like the Manchester teams and Liverpool.
Man City made a splash with the signing of Raheem Sterling for £49m while Man United signed midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Chelsea have made relatively significant signings of their own in goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and striker Radamel Falcao, but these are modest additions compared to what their rivals have been up to.
Th Blues are also pursuing Everton defender John Stones and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
Although Mourinho insisted that being outbid by other teams would not stress him out, he is hoping for the Blues to raise their level of play next season despite winning the Premier League title.
“John Terry – great season. This season it is not enough. Must be better. Fabregas – I don’t know many assists last year. Fantastic. It’s not enough,” Mourinho said to challenge his players.
The Blues figure to have another strong squad heading into the 2015-16 season that can repeat, but it will not be easy for them to hold off improved Man City and Man United teams.
