Mourinho told the News of the World: ‚ÄúMy relationship with Roman is fantastic.
‚ÄúEverything is perfect. He‚Äôs very friendly and I‚Äôm so pleased we managed to maintain relations.
‚ÄúHuman relationships are very important, that‚Äôs why I am very, very happy that everything has remained so amicable.
‚ÄúIt 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.
‚ÄúWe still talk and text each other ‚ÄĒ but we don‚Äôt talk about football all that much. We talk about this and that, whatever is happening with us.
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt ask his opinion about my professional situation and he doesn‚Äôt ask me for advice with Chelsea.‚ÄĚ
Mourinho added: ‚ÄúRoman is as committed to the club as ever.
‚ÄúMaybe he is not spending the same amount of money as before but that was always our aim for Chelsea.
‚ÄúThat‚Äôs 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 Chelsea‚Äôs transfer income had been bigger than spending. We had sold Arjen Robben to Real Madrid for ¬£24m and also Glen Johnson and Lassana Diarra.
