Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has claimed he is going through the worst spell in his 15 years as a professional manager, claiming he has never gone through a worse time for results.
The Blues have had a rather disastrous start in their bid to keep ahold of the Premier League trophy them emphatically won last season, having won just two of their opening seven league matches, losing three, and sitting in 14th position.
Despite being in his worst spell as a manager, Mourinho claims he can take positives from the negatives, and the bad start can make him to be better.
“I get it as a fantastic experience – an experience that I don’t want to repeat.
“To come after 15 years is too late but it’s helping me to be better. It is a great negative experience.”
Asked about the reported unrest in the Chelsea ranks, Mourinho was quick to quell the rumour, stating his side were behaving in the right manner.
“The players, when they make a mistake, they know and they feel.
“We speak openly, no prima donnas. When you make a mistake you have to speak about it. I call it ‘coaching’.”
Chelsea face another Premier League side who are probably failing to live up to their fans expectations, in Southampton. The Saints have had an inconsistent start to the season, and currently sit in 10th on nine points, but only one point ahead of their opponents tomorrow. Kick off is at 17:45 at Stamford Bridge, with the match to be played live on Sky Sports 1.
