Jose Mourinho: Why we desperately need to sign a new striker


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho reveals that he wants three excellent strikers in his squad for next season.

The Blues lost Didier Drogba after the 37-year-old decided to leave so as to secure regular football at a different club.

And the Portuguese admits the Ivorian has to be replaced, ideally with an experienced striker.

"We lost a striker [Drogba] who scored four goals in the Premier League, but three of these goals meant important points for us," Mourinho told the Sunday Times.

"A striker that was very experienced, who every minute was fantastic for us, even in the last 10 minutes to hold the ball, cool down emotionally the game.

"So we have to buy a striker because we want to have three strikers of a good level.

"We do not want to have just one. Then you lose a good position on the negotiation table."
