Mourinho says `average` players at times more `special` than `special ones`

London: New Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has showered praise for players who might not be superstars but give their everything to the game, spelling out a warning for the club`s `special ones`.

According to The Independent, Mourinho expressed that even he was not the special one any more and was one of the team`s members.

Mourinho said that he was not the kind of guy who made life easy for the great players and they had to give more than the others, adding that if they were great, they could not be happy with a few things they did.

The manager added that one had to praise the guys who played at their limits even though they were not superstars, because they were good players trying to support their teams.
