Chelsea Manger, Jose Mourinho has admitted that the English Premiership champions’ start to the 2015/2016 season in all competitions is the worst period of his career since he became a coach.
The London-side suffered another shock defeat in the midweek UEFA Champions League fixture, losing to FC Porto 2-1 in Portugal. The match which was a reunion between old foes, Mourinho and Porto goalkeeper, Iker Casillas. The defeat leaves Chelsea in 3rd position with 3 points from 2 matches.
The Blues have only 4 wins from 10 games in all competitions this season and lie in 14th place with 8 points after 7 matches in the EPL.
Speaking at the Friday press conference, Mourinho said, “I define it as the worst period in my career, with the worst results in my career.”
“I take it as a fantastic experience, but I don’t want to repeat it, I want to finish it tomorrow and start winning matches again. I think it comes too late, to come after 15 years is too late.
52 year old Chelsea gaffer stated, “It should happen after two, three or four but it is something that is helping me to be better. Not the hardest challenge, no, just the worst results.”
He also talked on the performances of players, like vice-captain Ivanovic whose contribution has been called into question this season: “But we [manager and squad] communicate openly. There are no prima donnas crying.
“Everyone wants to do well and accepts the criticisms, knows the job and knows what is letting the team down. Nobody wants to do that, but that’s the reality: for the second goal against Porto, Maicon should have been surrounded by three of our players, but they failed. They let the team down. But they know,” he added.
