Jose Mourinho hits back at Didier Drogba for saying Blues’ current squad lacks leadership

Jose Mourinho has taken an amazing swipe at Chelsea icon Didier Drogba.
Mourinho accused Drogba of “trying to sell books” after the former Blues striker claimed the current squad needed to show more leadership.
Drogba, who is hoping to return to Stamford Bridge in the future when he retires from playing, has just launched his new autobiography Commitment.
But boss Mourinho hit back at one of his most trusted lieutenants, saying: “When you speak because you want to sell books, I don’t read. I don’t read.
“I like good interviews. I like interviews from big guys like Didier with good journalists, newspapers or television.
“But this is not an interview. It was to sell books.
“It doesn’t disappoint me. It was just the reality. It was just to sell books. I can analyse Didier’s interview with pleasure, but not Didier selling books.”
It was a remarkable blast at one of Chelsea’s all-time greats as Drogba gave an interview to Mirror Sport in which he claimed the new generation needed to show more leadership qualities during the club’s crisis.

Drogba said: “Yes, JT (John Terry) is still there but on your own it is very difficult.
“Other players have to come up with this mentality, you are not born with it. You build it. Maybe you have it in you but you build it.”
Mourinho – whose Blues visit Tottenham this weekend – could also be accused of double standards, as he gave one of his most outspoken interviews to launch his own book earlier in the season.
