Jose Mourinho says that he does not agree with Brendan Rodgers

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says that he does not agree with Brendan Rodgers saying that Raheem Sterling is not available for sale at any price.

Instead, he has stated that every player has their price and that the club should sell them once the interested parties meet the pricetag. Mourinho was speaking ahead of the match with Stoke City during the weekend. Sterling has been a major focus for tabloid transfer news after his latest interview to the BBC where he stated that his contract talks have been put on hold. Further, he welcomed any interest from Arsenal.

It is also believed that Chelsea, Manchester United, and City are also monitoring the situation. Sterling is believed to have rejected an offer of £ 100,000 per week from Liverpool. The reason for rejecting appears to be motivated more by trophies than money. The 20-year-old believes that he can go to clubs elsewhere where there are better opportunities for winning titles. Mourinho has quoted the example of his best player – Eden Hazard, who he also terms as the best player in the league – for the fact that any player can be sold if he does not want to play for a specific club or a manager.

Ryan Babel was recently dragged into the limelight following a controversy from one of his team mates. Tom Starke, a fellow Hoffenheim player made a statement saying that the team was losing because they aren’t being able to score, and that a large portion of the blame should fall on to Ryan Babel.

According to Starke, Ryan is not showing a positive attitude on the field – in spite of Babel having been the highest scorer for the team so far this season!

Babel replied by saying that a single player himself is not responsible for a win or loss, it’s always the team that wins or loses as a whole and that’s where the team spirit comes in.

The controversy could have taken another turn when Starke was told of Babel’s reaction, but thankfully the german was more diplomatic the second time round, even if he did make the same point. He firstly admitted that the team desperately needs Ryan Babel as he has been the best throughout the season, but went on to say that, in times like these, when they aren’t winning matches, people look to Babel for moral support. When they see Babel looking down and negative in his performances, the team eventually suffers as a whole as all the other players look up to him.
