Dalglish: Mourinho must get used to questions why Chelsea sold Mata

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish feels Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will have to put up with questions about selling Juan Mata to Manchester United.

Dalglish wrote in the Mirror: "People have already said Chelsea missed Juan Mata on the night (against West Ham), and it is true his left foot is so good he could open a tin of sardines with it.

But Mata has gone to Manchester United, Mourinho sold him and will have to live with it. Chelsea only used him sparingly this season anyway and are still in a great position in the league.

"Mourinho's going to have to get used to people talking about Mata.

"It's one of the rules of football - players who are not there become more important than the ones who are."
