Campos assisted  Jose Mourinho as a member of the scouting team, while he was at Real Madrid.

In an interview  Campos stated that English clubs do not recruit the best in areas of defence.

“I think most English clubs do not know how to recruit for an issue that I almost think is cultural as almost everyone makes the same mistake.

“English clubs really, really like top attacking players, yet to a large extent make them play alongside medium-quality defences.” said Campos. 

The Portuguese complained about the that the recruitment method in England which in his candid view has made the league achieve little success  in Europe.

“And that, in my opinion, explains their relative lack of success in European competitions despite them spending exorbitant sumsHe also distinguished between great talents and medium quality support for team structure.

“In the Premier League there is a big difference between great talents, and the medium quality of support for the same offensive talent. Most teams lack great defenders, and defensive midfielders.” Campos concluded.

Campos is credited with the  facilitating the recruitment  of Bernardo SilvaThomas LemarTiemoue BakayokoFabinho and Kylian Mbappe. 

Chelsea are yet to release an official statement about the possible arrival of Campos.
