Chelsea boss Mourinho tribute to Leicester-bound Schwarzer

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed Mark Schwarzer is moving to Leicester City. Mourinho paid tribute to the Aussie ahead of speaking with the media after victory over FA Cup opponents Watford.

"I want to publicly thank Mark Schwarzer because he's leaving us and he was a fantastic guy for us," said Mourinho.

"As a goalkeeper, when we needed him he was there for us, and as a person and a professional he was an amazing guy in our group. On behalf of myself, my staff and my players I want to say we are going to miss the big guy and we wish him all the best in his new life at Leicester."
