Jose Mourinho

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho insists that Chelsea’s Premier League title defence is not being ripped apart by dressing room rifts.

The defending champions are languishing eight points behind leaders Manchester United after winning just two of their first seven league matches.

The Blues’ latest slip came in the Champions League on Tuesday when they were beaten 2-1 by Mourinho’s former club side Porto.


But despite claims that Mourinho’s decision to drop John Terry and several other stars has created an antagonistic atmosphere in the squad, the Blues boss is adamant there is no threat to the champions’ unity.

Ahead of Southampton visit to the bridge he said: “In here we speak openly. We criticise people without any kind of problems and no prima donnas crying.”

“When you make a mistake you have to speak about it. You know what I call that, in football? Coaching, he said.

“John is ready every game to play, even the days I leave him on the bench, he’s ready to play.”
