Mourinho refuses to quit
Embattled Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has no plans to resign from his post, except the players call for his head.
Saturday’s 1-3 loss to Southampton was the second home loss for The Blues already in just 8 games played, and the team lie precariously close to the relegation zone.
Sunderland’s Dick Advocaat and Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers both vacated their posts on Saturday, and Jose Mourinho is being touted as the next manager to face the sack.
“People can say what they want. I think you should go straight to the players,” Mourinho said, according to The Mirror “Get a table at Cobham [Chelsea’s training ground] next week — John Terry doesn’t go to the national team, Diego Costa doesn’t go, Ramires doesn’t go. Ask them.
“If they tell you they don’t trust me, [that] is the only thing that can make me resign. The only thing. But not fake sources. The players at the table. In this moment it’s not so easy and my feelings — I’m so unhappy with the sport feeling of defeat but I am so happy with myself with the way I am facing this.”
What do you think? Can Jose Mourinho still turn things around?
