Jose Mourinho on Oscar's future and season-ending awards


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says winning the league is more important than winning individual awards.

Eden Hazard and Diego Costa join David De Gea, Philippe Coutinho, Harry Kane and Alexis Sanchez in this season's Player of the Year shortlist but the Portuguese says the focus is on winning the Premier League.

"It's the league we want to win, it's not the player of the year or the manager of the year," Mourinho said.

"Obviously on top of collective ambitions, a player deserves something special and when it comes from his fellow players it means a bit more, so if he gets that, great.

Mourinho also rubbished rumours linking midfielder Oscar with a possible move away from the club.

"Of course he will stay," he said.

"He just signed a contract a few months ago. He is one of the players with a long-term contract, a boy who is 23 that Chelsea bought three years ago.

"Obviously he's in the best period of his career; obviously we don't want to sell."
