The Blues boss has warned
his club they would be making
a mistake if they were to sack
him and claims referees are
scared to give decisions for
his team after defeat to
Southampton
Chelsea manager Jose
Mourinho reacted to
questions regarding his
future by insisting that if the
club sack him, they will be
sacking the greatest manager
the club has ever had.

The reigning champions
slumped to their fourth
Premier League defeat of the
season on Saturday, going
down 3-1 to Southampton at
Stamford Bridge despite
taking the lead through
Willian.

The defeat follows on from
Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to Porto in
the Champions League and
leaves the Blues in 16th place
in the Premier League table, a
distant 10 points behind
leaders Manchester City.

“If the club wants to sack me
they have to sack me because
I am not running away from
my responsibility, my team,”
he told Sky Sports after the
game.

“To be champions now is
obviously very, very difficult
because the distance is
considerable. I am more than
convinced that we will finish
top four.

“It is a crucial moment in the
history of this club because if
they sack me they sack the
best manager this club has
ever had.

“The message is that the
results are the fault of the
manager. This is a moment for
everybody to assume their
responsibilities and stick
together.”

Mourinho also insisted the
Blues were being harshly
treated by referees and
insisted they were denied a
penalty against Southampton,
which could have changed the
outcome of the game.

“The referees are afraid to
give decisions for Chelsea,” he
added. “At 1-1, it is a huge
penalty and once again we
don’t get.

“If the FA wants to punish me
they can. They don’t punish
other managers. My players
deserve it and the fans
deserve it.

“Referees are afraid to give
decisions for Chelsea. Why?
Because there is always a
question mark and we are
always punished.

“Clear penalties are not given.
Even in the Champions League
in a match we lose 2-1, we are
not given a penalty in the last
minute.

“The penalty in this game is
crucial because my team, at
the moment, the first negative
thing that happens, they
collapse. The penalty was a
giant penalty and after that
the team lost even more
confidence.”
