Jose prepared to sell

Jose Mourinho has insisted that he is willing to sell any Chelsea player who is feeling unhappy.
The likes of Shaun Wright-Phillips, Wayne Bridge, Glen Johnson and Robert Huth have barely featured for The Blues this season, and are desperate to play ahead of the World Cup.
Mourinho still feels that players such as Bridge are valuable to his squad, but is not prepared to compromise Chelsea's chances of success for the needs of individuals.
"Anyone who isn't happy here can leave," he revealed.
"I know Wayne Bridge needs to play football but Chelsea need to win matches.
"I will keep my word to my players, I will keep the squad of players that I trust unless somebody shows me they are not happy or wants to leave."
Bridge started the FA Cup game against Huddersfield on Saturday, but Mourinho indicated that he would not remain in the picture when The Premiership resumes next weekend.
"A Chelsea manager chooses, in his opinion, the players who are in better condition to play matches. Of course I want to help Bridge and give him some matches because he is a very good player who wants to come back to a high level," he explained.
"But if I feel that Gallas or Del Horno are the best options for me I cannot think with my heart."
