Djilobodji not my choice - Mourinho

Mourinho had no involvement in Djilobodji signing

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has insisted that he did not intend to sign Nantes defender Djilobodji on transfer deadline day.

The Premier League champions wrapped up the services of the 27-year-old on the final day of the transfer window, but did not include him in the club's Champions League squad.

Mourinho has now revealed that it was not his decision to bring Djilobodji to Stamford Bridge this summer.

He added that the Senegalese international was left out of their European venture in order to fit in Brazilian sensation Kenedy.

The Blues continue their title defence at Everton on Saturday.
