Chelsea's Kalou: We're over Mourinho exit

Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou is convinced they're over the worst after Saturday's 6-0 thrashing of Manchester City.

Kalou has declared everything is back to normal at Stamford Bridge following the departure of Jose Mourinho: "I had it at Feyenoord when Ruud Gullit left. But in that situation Gullit left at the end of the season.

"In this case, it didn't happen like that, but it's all experience. It's all part of football. In this game you meet people, you work with people, but things change.

"Jose Mourinho brought me to Chelsea so in that respect it was difficult to see him go. But for me, it is also important that you keep the great memories of that person and look back on it as a good time.

"I'm a professional footballer and these things happen so we have to move on.

"The most important thing is the team. As professionals, that's all that matters, so we have to give our best to whoever we are working with.

"Avram likes his players to be focused on their jobs and their goals. He knows what he wants and where he's going. So we have to make his job as easy as we can by giving him our best."
