Mourinho hails ‘really amazing’ Robben

The Rio Report

Jose Mourinho has lavished praise on his former player at Chelsea, Arjen Robben, for his performances at the World Cup finals.

Robben has been the star of the Netherlands side which has reached the semi-finals, where they will take on Argentina in Sao Paulo.

And Mourinho says the Bayern Munich winger is living up to his true potential.

"Once more I go back to the way you have to feel when you play for your country and again in Holland we have great examples of that," said Yahoo's Global Football Ambassador.

"You have Robben, fighting in an unbelievable way and leading his team and for me this is fantastic, absolutely fantastic.

"Robben is a big player - he is not a kid any more. He is 30 years old. He is probably at his last World Cup - or at least the last World Cup in the maximum of his potential.

"Robben is showing everything he showed during his career, the quality he has, but at the same is showing a physical condition, a mental condition that we have to say, is really amazing.

"I am so happy for him because he is a really good guy."
