I wonder if he said this with a straight face. Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho said he is not under pressure following the 3-1 loss to Everton.
Chelsea recorded their third loss in five premier league matches of the new campaign when they faced Everton, and Mourinho felt Chelsea deserved a win.
Mourinho said his position at the club is not under pressure, stating ‘the refugees are under pressure, not me’.
“No [I don’t feel under pressure]. I think the refugees are under big pressure,” he said. “It’s a pleasure and an honour to coach Chelsea.
“We deserve a better result, we played for a better result, and we don’t deserve this result.
“Confidence is low, an unhappy team because of bad results, a team with some doubts because of every unlucky incident. For me, clearly, you can say what you want but the players deserve a much better result.
“The big concern is everything goes against us. Every mistake we are punished, immediately. The players, they feel that weight.
“We need to win a couple of consecutive matches, for the players to smile again, the strikers to score goals, the defenders not to make mistakes and be punished.
“We need confidence. I think confidence is fundamental. The players fight, they play, they try, but it’s not easy. I don’t like when you ask me questions saying ‘somebody told this, somebody told that’.”
