“Yesterday I was shocked to get a message from Jose Mourinho,” the Croatian told The Sun. “Demba Ba texted me to stay Jose asked him for my number It was great.
“I felt ‘wow.’ He said ‘I’m glad you’re here and welcome to England’. It was really flattering. The guy is class, what can I say.”
Mourinho is one of the best football managers in the world and won the Premier League title with Chelsea in the recently concluded 2014-15 season.
It seems that the Portuguese is happy to see the former Besiktas boss move to England and become the new boss of London rivals West Ham.
Chelsea, though, will face no threat from the Hammers in regard to their title challenge next season.
West Ham will be aiming for a top-six finish in the Premier League in the 2014-15 campaign.
The Hammers finished 12th in the 2014-15 campaign with 47 points from 38 matches in Sam Allardyce’s final season in charge at the Boleyn Ground.
