Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hailed the club fans after their 2-1 Champions League victory over Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday, according to reports from the Mirror.
Mourinho has recently been under pressure following a string of poor results this season, with the Blues a disappointing 15th on the Premier League table.
But last night’s victory in the European Cup seems to have given the Portuguese manager some time to turn their campaign around, and Mourinho had nothing but praise for the fans at Stamford Bridge.
He said: “With Chelsea, I think this is my moment. It was amazing. The club should be proud of their fans.
“Today comes in a moment where the results are not good. It comes in a moment where you are asking for my ‘end’. The fans read newspapers. They watch tv.
“They listen to pundits, commentators, opinions, read blogs, and this was quite unbelievable what they tried to say today.
“Today they tried to say: ‘We want you here.’ And, probably, they want to say: ‘All of you, let him work. We want him. Let him work.’ It was fantastic.
“The players showed they wanted to win. Today they did. Last week no, but they showed again they wanted to win. And the fans showed their passion for the club.”
Willian was again the hero with the Brazilian smashing in a brilliant free-kick in the 82nd minute after Dynamo thought they secured a point when Aleksandar Dragovic scored the equalizer just a few minutes earlier.
The result leaves Chelsea second in their group with 7 points, while leaders FC Porto sit at the summit with 10.
Their next Champions League fixture will be at Maccabi Tel-Aviv on November 24th before they host Porto in the final group game next month.
