Chelsea’s coach, José mourinho has lashed out in response to questions as to why his third seasons were always bad for him as a manager. The question was asked during a pre-match conference for the champions league game between the Blues and Maccabi Tel-Aviv. The question was asked out of concern that Mourinho couldn’t always maintain his momentum into the third season.
Mourinho’s response was: “My third season in Porto, I didn’t have a third season, in Inter, I didn’t have a third season. My third season at Chelsea, the first time, I won the FA Cup and the League Cup, and I played the Champions League semifinals. The third season in Real Madrid, I won the Spanish Super Cup, lost the Copa del Rey final, and I went to the Champions League semifinals.These are my third seasons. So click on ‘Google’ instead of asking stupid questions. You spoke about the third season, and I’m telling you the question is stupid. I know the point — it is that the question is stupid.”
Mourinho also confirmed that there would be changes in his squad and it wasn’t because he was having problems with the players. Mounrinho said: “I can make changes. But I know the consequences of that because if I make a couple of changes in my team, instead of you saying, ‘He has a squad, he has more options, he is looking for a new dynamic, he wants to give a couple of chances to people who have been working hard,’ I know what you will say. If I leave out [Cesar] Azpilicueta, it’s because I have a problem with him. Same with [John] Terry, same with [Cesc] Fabregas. I know the consequences. But I cannot be worried about what you say or write. I have to be just worried about my team and players.
When mourinho was also asked about the possible reasons for the club’s recent poor outings, he defended Chelsea and maintained that although Chelsea is having a bad time, they are still the champions of England and nobody can take that away from them.
In conclusion, Chelsea’s game on Wednesday is a very important one and it would be used to gauge whether or not Chelsea has regained form. Thus, Wednesday’s game is a must win for Chelsea one way or the other.
