Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has dismissed claims that he has faced dressing-room unrest over the performances of German international Michael Ballack.
Reports in the English and German media hinted at disquiet about his Ballack’s form sicne arriving at Stamford Bridge in the summer.
But Mourinho said: “Reports about problems in the dressing room are not correct.
“Do we want more from him in terms of performance? Not from him, from everybody.”
Mourinho also warned that he would not be forced into changing his team.
“If the objective is to put some kind of pressure on me then no chance because I pick the team, nobody else does it,” he added. “Press opinions, other player opinions are not for me.
“He plays against Wycombe and I hope it is the first step for him to play his first English cup final.”
