Mourinho told the News of the World: â€śMy relationship with Roman is fantastic.
â€śEverything is perfect. Heâ€™s very friendly and Iâ€™m so pleased we managed to maintain relations.
â€śHuman relationships are very important, thatâ€™s why I am very, very happy that everything has remained so amicable.
â€śIt 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.
â€śWe still talk and text each other â€” but we donâ€™t talk about football all that much. We talk about this and that, whatever is happening with us.
â€śI donâ€™t ask his opinion about my professional situation and he doesnâ€™t ask me for advice with Chelsea.â€ť
Mourinho added: â€śRoman is as committed to the club as ever.
â€śMaybe he is not spending the same amount of money as before but that was always our aim for Chelsea.
â€śThatâ€™s 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 Chelseaâ€™s transfer income had been bigger than spending. We had sold Arjen Robben to Real Madrid for ÂŁ24m and also Glen Johnson and Lassana Diarra.
