Jose Mourinho has revealed club owner, Roman Abrahimovich still believes he’s the right man to lead the club.
Chelsea are currently suffering a slump in form that has seen them lose eight of 15 league games this season. And they face a tough task when they play Porto on Wednesday, a loss will eliminate the EPL holders from the UCL.
However, Mourinho insists club owner Roman Abrahimovich believes in him and his abilities.
“I think I have done enough good things at the club for the owner to know the quality I have,” he told his pre-match media conference on Tuesday.
“I don’t think the owner is a person to change with the wind. I know the wind is really strong because of the results in the Premier League, but I also know he feels I am best for the club.
“The owner showed belief in me twice, first when he brought me back to the club and second when he gave me a new contract. He knows who I am, what I give to the club.
“You can read these bad results and blame everything on the manager. You can look at the results and look to players with performances below acceptable. You can look to unlucky decisions we have been having.
“You can look to every direction and decide that it is not just one man’s responsibility.”
Mourinho had previously been asked whether he would still be in his position if Chelsea suffered defeat to Porto and exited the Champions League.
He replied: “There are no ifs. You are a pessimistic guy, I am an optimistic guy.”
On the subject of fitness, Mourinho confirmed that both John Terry and Ramires are fit to play against his former side.
