Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is full of praise for Derby County counterpart Steve McClaren.

Chelsea saw off Derby in their FA Cup clash yesterday.

Mourinho said: "I wished Steve (McClaren) the best for the rest of the season in the Championship. He is doing a very good job, improving the side a lot, they have a good side and they can fight for promotion. I hope next season I can come here not in the Cup, but in the Premier League.

"The players respected their opponent, they played seriously from minute one. We didn't need a second game."
