Mourinho vows not to quit

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes he is still the right man to lead the club, despite the club’s poor start to the 2015/16 season.

The Blues only lost three league games on their way to winning the title last season but, with their shock capitulation to a 3-1 defeat at home to Southampton on Saturday, the club have already lost four of their eight Premier League fixtures this campaign.

To make matters worse, Chelsea also fell to a 2-1 defeat to Mourinho’s old club Porto in the Champions League to dent their chances of qualifying from Group G.

However, the Portuguese boss, who is well known for his belief in his own abilities, remains bullish about his role at the club, claiming there is no-one better suited to lead Chelsea.

“If the club want to sack me, they have to sack me because I’m not running away from my responsibility and my team,” the 52-year-old told Sky Sports.

“This is a crucial moment in the history of this club because if the club sacks me, they sack the best manager this club had and the message is: Bad results and the manager is guilty.

“No way I resign. No way. Why? Because Chelsea cannot have a better manager than me. I want the best for my club and the best for my club is for me to stay,” he concluded.
