Chelsea boss Mourinho ready to assist England cause

José Mourinho is willing to assist the Football Association's recently appointed commission looking into the declining number of Englishmen playing in the Barclays Premier League, reports The Guardian. Mourinho and Arsène Wenger, the only other serving manager to have won the Premier League title, are expected to be contacted before the end of the month for their thoughts.

"If they want to speak with me, I will be open," said the Chelsea boss.

"I will give them my opinion. But if you concentrate on just the here and now - not on the future, in three or four years' time, but on the group of players at Roy Hodgson's disposal to play the World Cup - then England have players more than good enough to make a good national side."
