Makelele: Mourinho misses his old Chelsea players; Man Utd making him tired

Chelsea hero Claude Makelele believes Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is struggling to manage the Old Trafford locker room.

Makelele was a vital part of Mourinho's first Chelsea side which won back to back titles after the “Special One" arrived from Porto in 2004.

He told The Sun: “I learned a lot with Jose.

“But at Chelsea he had players like me, John Terry, Frank Lampard. Now it is different. This generation is not the same.

“It has made him tired. He has gone through generation after generation after generation of players.

“Each one is different and maybe he misses the earlier generation. But he still works hard."
