The Chelsea boss is done for now. We’ll have the full transcript for you very soon.
On the matches in Japan
We’ve had two difficult games in humidity. The tour has served its purpose. We need to be fit and ready for Manchester United, and the clock runs down pretty quickly at this stage. Now we just have to keep working.
On Willian being the number 10
There’s no confirmation on that decision. It will be taken in due course. Hopefully his return to training date will be early August.
On Tammy Abraham
I won’t get carried away with anything about this performance. Tammy’s a goalscorer and he’s hungry for goals. Now it’s his time to prove it for Chelsea. To get his goal will put him in good stead. There’s competition. Mason’s had a great trip and he’s announced himself into the first team squad.
On the workload
In terms of the workload, the players have to get used to it now. I’ve set the standard of how I want them to work
On the tour
It’s been a good tour and it’s always good to come to Japan. Most importantly it is work and both games have been good exercises for us. What I’ve learnt about the players is that they are a good group. I’m very happy.
