Tottenham boss Mourinho reacts to Chelsea being cleared to buy in January

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has shrugged off Chelsea now being cleared to buy in January.

Chelsea's transfer ban was overturned on appeal on Friday.

“I'm not worried with that," he said. “First, I'm not looking to the distance from Chelsea.

“Between us and Chelsea [there are] still two or three teams, so we cannot look so high and so far.

“Second – even with the transfer ban lifted, it is not easy to get better players than they have. They have very good players.

“Even with the ban gone and a hypothetical multi-million budget, I'm not sure they can get much better players than they have."
