Mourinho Calls For Tactical Breaks

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has called for managers to be given tactical breaks in the game to allow them to make tactical changes.

The Portuguese tactician has claimed that he would like the chance to convene with his team mid-game and that he hopes he will like to still be involved in football if the law change occurs in the future.

"Football is very slow to change the rules. How many years have we had to wait for goal line technology, for the third substitution," Mourinho told the Daily Mirror.

“I hope I am still in football when they give the coach the chance to stop the game during the first half once and during the second half because you can make the game much better.”

Mourinho’s idea would see a touchline technician allowed the chance to step into a match and alter its direction, similarly to the way Louis van Gaal was able to do during a water break in the Netherlands’ match against Mexico in this summer’s World Cup.

"Louis van Gaal in the World Cup, the ref stopped the game for the water break, and he changed the system of his team and managed to win the game," he added.

"So maybe I will one day have the chance to stop the game in the first half and once in the second half."

Chelsea will face a tough test when they continue their league campaign against Everton on Saturday at Goodison Park at 18:30.
