Mourinho: Now is not the time to sack me

“He’s not sharp, he’s not making best decisions”, the Portuguese said, adding he would be throwing a few young players such as Reuben Loftus-Cheek into the mix in the hope of improvement. The penalty is a giant penalty. Like many teams find, it is hard to come back after winning the Premier League, we have seen it with Man City.

The away side took the momentum from the goal into the second half and romped home the freight train in superb fashion.

No team in the history of the Premier League has ever managed to finish higher than fifth after such a dismal start and leaves qualification for next season’s Champions League in doubt. They are in such a low moment that they collapse.

I trust them. I know they are good players.

“To be champions now is very hard because the distance is considerable”, Mourinho told Sky Sports. “But I think top four is completely doable”.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, who was at Saturday’s game, is understood to be furious at the current run of results but is backing his manager to turn things around. The manager is guilty.

“There are other people at the club who should assume their responsibilities and stick together”. This is what I want.

The defending champions were humiliated by an impressive Saints side and, languishing in 16th place, have now endured their worst start to a season in 37 years. I consider myself that I have a big self-esteem and big ego.

This is by far Mourinho’s most hard spell as a manager at the top level. If your leader is on TV going mental, I hesitate to think about what’s going on behind closed doors. “If we can show this against Chelsea we can show it much more“. “I speak a lot with my people”.

“Maybe the situation is so negative that a young player feels less pressure than when the team is top of the league”.

“And, as I was saying, sadness brings sadness, bad results attract bad results”.

“The first mistake is just the first because after that comes another“. Unfortunately for them this is not happening. I don’t want to be non-polite.

“We had a big penalty that the referee should be here, speaking to you, explaining why he did not give the penalty”.
