Jose Mourinho launched another attack on Chelsea players
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho took a fresh jibe at his players after witnessing his side rooted at the relegation zone after 16 matches into the 2015/16 season. The Portuguese manager is having the worst start in his managerial career after falling to nine record defeats in a single season.
He let out his frustration in the latest interview with Chelsea TV following after the “betraying” accusations following the 2-1 loss to Leicester on Monday night.
“Some of them need to rethink how the way they live Chelsea, they live football, they live their job.”
The manager then went on to claim that certain players in his squad are not showing enough passion to play in a Chelsea shirt. He also blames that they are not putting enough efforts to help the team to turn their their fortunes.
“Chelsea is big, football is more than a job, it’s a passion”, he continued.
“Yes, I feel frustrated with some players and I feel that some others they give absolutely everything and don’t deserve to lose.”
Interestingly, the Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas commented that the entire squad must be responsible for the bad run of form, while experienced defender Gary Cahill hits-back at recent media comments claiming that “We are not Robots”.
But Mourinho’s rants didn’t stop there as he took another swipe by comparing the Chelsea squad to that of Sunderland’s.
The future of Champions league winning boss with Porto and Inter Milan at the Stamford Bridge hangs in the balance, with Chelsea on just 15 points from 16 matches, just a point clear off the relegation zone.
Abramovich and the rest of Chelsea’s hierarchy are weighing up their options over the last 48 hours and a bad result against Sunderland on Saturday may be the end of the road for 52-year old.
It is believed that Abrahamovic is waiting on Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola, who is set to announce his future on 25th December. But, both Manchester clubs – United and City are in the run for the Spaniard’s signature and this will be an interesting battle on the prospects.
An alternate option considered by the board is Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone, but has to wait till the end of the season. Carlo Ancelotti, Fabio Capello, ex-Liverpool boss Brenden Rodgers are some of the other candidates speculated to be in the probable list to take over at Chelsea at the end of the season.
If things still doesn’t change by end of this calender year, Chelsea may also choose to operate with an interim manager until one of their prime targets become available at the end of the season.
