Chelsea must decide on duo says Mourinho
Tuesday 16 June 2009
Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho remains coy over the possible arrivals of Chelsea pair Deco and Ricardo Carvalho to the San Siro this summer.
The Italian champions are lining up a move to bring the Portuguese duo to Inter, but former Stamford Bridge boss Mourinho admits the situation is out of his hands.
He said: "They are Chelsea players.
"I don't like to talk about other clubs' players.
"They used to be my players and it would be a pleasure to have them again in the future.
"But it is Chelsea that must decide what to do."
Mourinho is familiar with centre-back Carvalho and midfielder Deco having coached both players at Porto.
Carvalho, who moved to Chelsea in 2004 to work again under Mourinho, endured a frustrating campaign with his appearances for the Blues limited by injury.
Deco joined Chelsea from Barcelona in summer 2008 but also suffered injuries, making just 22 league appearances last season.
