Kalas: Mourinho asked me if I was up to Chelsea job

Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas has revealed how Jose Mourinho asked him if he was up to the "challenge" of being a Blues first teamer.

The youngster has been called back from Vitesse Arnhem by Mourinho to provide cover across the back-four.

Kalas said: "It was the first day of training when Mr Mourinho came to me and asked me if I would accept the challenge to be a first team player and give it everything and, of course, I accepted. I had no doubts. Straight away I said yes. I played for two years in Holland, I played 63 games and another maybe would be worse than better."
