Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has backed fellow Portuguese José Mourinho to bounce back from Chelsea’s horrendous start.
Ronaldo played under Mourinho at the Santiago Bernabeu before the Portuguese manager returned to Chelsea.
Ronaldo admits he is not surprised about Chelsea’s situation, but he’s certain Mourinho can change their fortunes.
“I’m not surprised because in football anything can happen,” Ronaldo told BBC Sport. “I’m not surprised.
“Of course he is a manager that I was working with for two years and I know his potential.
“I know him and Chelsea are going to pass this tough situation.
“As a Portuguese man of course I want to see the Portuguese people at the top level all the time, so this is what I wish for him – that he can go through this bad situation and make Chelsea fans happy, because I think they deserve it.”
