Slav thrilled by Mourinho welcome


josebilicSlaven Bilic has become a major fan of Jose Mourinho after the Chelsea boss went right out of his way to welcome him to the Premier League.

The new Hammers boss received a phone call from ‘The Special One’ soon after being installed as the new Hammer boss and is thrilled to bits with the new connection.

He said:”I was shocked to get a message from Jose Mourinho. Demba Ba texted me to say Jose had asked for my number.

“It was great. I felt ‘wow.’ He said to me: “I’m glad you are here and welcome to England. It was really flattering. The guy is class. What can I say.”

    People can moan about Mourinho all they want & yeah he plays the system when it comes to winding opposition up & getting at refs,but away from that he is a class act.I have seen many instinces of him doing this sort of thing with managers,footballers.
