Middlesbrough boss Karanka: No Chelsea pressure to play Chalobah, Omeruo

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka insists that he is under no pressure from Jose Mourinho to use Chelsea loanees Kenneth Omeruo and Nathaniel Chalobah.

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka insists that he is under no pressure from Jose Mourinho to use Chelsea loanees Kenneth Omeruo and Nathaniel Chalobah.

Omeruo joined earlier this month, but has yet to feature for the club - whilst Chalobah was not included in the weekend win over Charlton after arriving earlier in the week.

"I don't have to explain anything to Jose," he said. "He knows how it is. Maybe if we were losing games and the two weren't playing, he might be on the phone to me, but we're winning.

"It's the kind of problem that I want. We're delighted to have brought the two players from Chelsea, and I'm confident they'll fit in well here.

"It's a chance for them to get some experience under their belt. But they have a problem in that the team's playing very well and they know that. It's difficult for them."
