I am the man to turn it around at Chelsea – Mourinho
Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, has insisted that no other manager can turn around the slump at the club except him.
The Portuguese saw his team fall to their third league defeat of the season in just five games, after a Steven Naismith hat-trick gave Everton a 3-1 win on Saturday.
Mourinho says he is still the champion and that the players are not getting what they deserve.
“The players deserve much better than what they are getting,” he told BT Sport.
“I know that now it’s easy for everybody to criticise me and the players and [say] ‘everything is wrong’. I completely disagree.
“I am the champion, the players are the champions. The way they are playing is not so bad as the results.
“I don’t think think there is a better manager than me to come to Chelsea and to do my job. That’s as simple as that. I’m the man for the job.
“I’m the man that gave so many good things for Chelsea. I’m the man.”
Chelsea have picked up only four points so far, but Mourinho is adamant that he is not under pressure and blasted critics with “short memories.”
He said: “I’m not feeling under pressure. I’m feeling that the results are the worst results ever in my career and [they are] not adapted to what I feel is my quality, my status.
“The players are feeling enough frustration and sadness.
“The media can be [a] critic, the supporters can be [a] critic. That’s a right they have, especially for the ones with short memories; they forgot that three months ago we won the title.
“That is football.”
