Mourinho told the News of the World: âMy relationship with Roman is fantastic.
âEverything is perfect. Heâs very friendly and Iâm so pleased we managed to maintain relations.
âHuman relationships are very important, thatâs why I am very, very happy that everything has remained so amicable.
âIt was hard to leave Chelsea, hard to live without Chelsea but it was better ending it the way we did than going on for two to three more months and falling out for ever. It was better for me, better for him, better for everybody.
âWe still talk and text each other â but we donât talk about football all that much. We talk about this and that, whatever is happening with us.
âI donât ask his opinion about my professional situation and he doesnât ask me for advice with Chelsea.â
Mourinho added: âRoman is as committed to the club as ever.
âMaybe he is not spending the same amount of money as before but that was always our aim for Chelsea.
âThatâs the direction we were already taking. I remember when I was talking with Peter Kenyon preparing for that last season. It was the first time that Chelseaâs transfer income had been bigger than spending. We had sold Arjen Robben to Real Madrid for Â£24m and also Glen Johnson and Lassana Diarra.
