After an abysmal start to the season, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, has revealed to the club faithfuls that he cannot guarantee the club Champions League football next season.
A League Cup defeat to Stoke City in midweek has only increased the pressure on the former Real Madrid man and with another tough clash against Liverpool on the horizon, Mourinho admitted that a top-four finish could be way out of reach.
When asked about top four finish in his pre-match conference he said: “I cannot promise it.”
Asked whether Jurgen Klopp’s definition of himself raised a laugh, Mourinho was similarly blunt: “Why should I laugh?”
“Last season Liverpool won nothing and didn’t qualify for Champions League and they are still a big club and two years ago Manchester United didn’t even qualify for the Champions League, or Europa League and they are still a monster club.
“In my career every game is a must-win. I don’t win always but every game is a must-win.”
Another reporter’s attempt to find out if Mourinho had been in contact with owner Roman Abramovich received another short reply; “I don’t have to tell you.”
