Chelsea's manager happy with his new signing

José Mourinho knows he made the right movement when signing former Barcelona starlet Pedro Rodríguez. The Spaniard scored in his Premier League debut with Chelsea against WBA, and also provided an assist for Diego Costa. 

Mourinho on Pedro

  • "He's very good player. There is always a question ark because of how many top players come to England and don't perform immediately".
  • "We have examples in our club and there are lots of examples at other clubs, so it's very nice for him to come and straight away perform the way he did".

The Portuguese expected that.....

  • "‘I expected him to perform like that because he had a good pre-season, and he played three competitive matches. He came with minutes, with intensity, so it was not a question of intensity and condition, it was a question of understanding".
  • ‘We worked tactically every day since he arrived for him to try to understand the team and for the team to try to understand what he wants and needs. It was a very good performance.’
