Mourinho confident Cole will bounce back

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is expecting that defender Ashley Cole will regain his form after again being forced to sit on the bench in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with West Brom.

Spanish international Cesar Azpilicueta is a replacement for Cole and continued to prove himself in the left-back position.

The Portuguese believes defender Cole will soon take his place as a wake up call.

“I can make mistakes, I can be unfair, for sure I am and for sure I do that, but I always give a lot of thought to my decisions,” he said. “I decided for Azpilicueta to play against Schalke and he was fantastic. On Saturday he was very good again.

“Ashley is a top professional, he is a fighter. He has to work hard, to fight hard because the place (in the team) is his place.

“Of course it is not Azpilicueta’s best position, and it is not a position where Ashley can think that he is in trouble now. No, he has to just to work and fight and the position is there waiting for him, no problem.”
