Jose plan­ning to show lot Mour faith in Ramires

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

JOSE MOUR­INHO in­sists Ramires has a ma­jor role to play dur­ing the sec­ond half of Chelsea’s tro­phy-hunt­ing cam­paign.

Blues mid­fielder Ramires has op­er­ated as a fringe player dur­ing an in­jury-af­fected sea­son.

But af­ter play­ing the whole of Sun­day’s FA Cup third-round vic­tory over Wat­ford, the Brazil in­ter­na­tional is keen for more action.

And Stam­ford Bridge boss Mour­inho says the South Amer­i­can’s time will come as the fix­tures build up dur­ing Chelsea’s bid for a clean sweep of four tro­phies.

Mour­inho said: “I am pleased that Ramires is back.

“He needs to play with­out pain, which he did for the first time for a long, long time against Wat­ford.

“Now it’s a ques­tion of hav­ing his qual­i­ties again and get­ting back to his nor­mal level.
