Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Garry Monk and his Swansea City side as he prepares his team to face the Swans at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Swansea start with arguably the toughest test of their season when they travel to the home of the champions on the opening weekend. Garry Monk has already revealed it’s going to be one of the hardest Premier League season’s to date, with the TV money that kicks in the following season.
However, Jose Mourinho believes the Swansea manager is doing a remarkable job at the Liberty Stadium and he didn’t have a bad word to say about him or the Swans ahead of Saturday’s clash. Speaking to BBC Sport, he said;
“It’s a difficult kick-off to the season for us. He’s doing very well and the club is doing magnificently. Garry’s got a good team already but he’s improved the team. It’s a very good team and he’s a very good young manager at a club that I admire a lot.
“I left the Premier League [in 2007]with Swansea in the Championship. I came back to England a few years later with Swansea not only in the Premier League but a stable and strong club in the Premier League.”
The trip to Stamford Bridge will no doubt be one of the sterner tests of the campaign this season. But, the Swans showed on the opening day last year against Manchester United that they are more than capable of going anywhere in the Premier League and getting a result.
