Jose Mourinho Argues That PSG Are More Aggressive Than… Shrewsbury Town?

Chelsea meet Ligue 1 champions PSG tomorrow night in the second leg of their epic Champions League encounter.

The tie hangs in the balance with the sides level after a 1-1 draw in Paris, but Jose Mourinho claims Laurent Blanc’s team are more aggressive than League Two gladiators, Shrewsbury Town.

Mourinho has spoken at length about the lack of protection afforded to his players, with Shrewsbury in particular proving a worthy physical adversary during the Blues 2-1 triumph in the League Cup earlier this season.

But the Chelsea manager argues, while English teams are known for their aggressive play, he still fears tough-tackling PSG:

I thought an English team would never be surprised by aggression, because of the aggression we have in our country.

This season we’ve played against sides from the Championship in the Cups, against teams from League One, and Shrewsbury from League Two, but the most aggressive team was PSG.

Whether PSG can derail Chelsea’s bid for European dominance remains to be seen, but tomorrow night’s match will surely be one of the most physically demanding fixtures of the season for both teams.
