Torres brands Chelsea boss Mourinho 'chequebook manager'

Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has branded Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho a chequebook manager. Torres was asked to compare Atletico coach Diego Simeone with his former Blues manager.

He is quoted by the Daily Express: "They're very different. It's difficult to compare, because it's not the same being on a team where you have players you want, spend the money you want and after that they win, that's what makes Mourinho.

"That's not easy. And with Simeone the experience you have with Atleti is winning with other resources.

"I don't know what Mourinho would do at Atletico or Simeone at Chelsea. What I like is that they are very intelligent to adapt to what they have."
