Jose Mourinho : Chelsea players “betrayed” me
Chelsea manager José Mourinho said his players had betrayed him and can no longer view themselves as superstars after Chelsea suffered a 9th league defeat of the season out of 16 matches, at the hands of an excellent Leicester City side.
The Special One hit out after Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez fired Leicester back to the top of the Premier League.
Mourinho, already close to the axe, said: “I feel my work was betrayed. The top four is gone, clearly. I worked four days on this match, prepared everything related to the opponent.
Chelsea now lies 16th on the table with just one point above the relegation zone and Mourinho is under increasing pressure to hold on to his job at Stamford bridge.
Asked whether he was 100% convinced that he would still be in charge for the Sunderland game, Mourinho replied: “The only thing I can say is that I want to be. I have no doubts and I think you know me well enough, three years this time, plus three years another time, that I am not afraid of a big challenge, and in this moment this is a real big challenge. I want to stay, I hope Mr Abramovich and the board want me to stay.”
