Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is leaning on the club's senior players to bring through a winning culture.

Mourinho wants stalwarts from his previous success - like John Terry, Frank Lampard and Petr Cech - to embed his famous winning mentality in the younger members of the squad.

"Of course, there are senior players still at the club who can do the same and this is the legacy of the club culture – as some guys are arriving, they have others who can transmit to them immediately what this club means.

"One day, these older players will finish and the younger guys now will be the older ones in the future, so the Chelsea culture is continuously passed on from one generation to the next."
