Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that he will never leave the club unless his players demand his exit, according to reports from the Mirror.
After the Blues’ 3-1 loss to Southampton on Saturday, the Blues board held a meeting with Mourinho to learn more about the club’s poor start to the season.
“Go straight to the players,” he said. “If they tell you they don’t trust me, that is the only thing that can make me resign. The only thing.”
Not only were the board unhappy with the champions’ current predicament, but fans have started turning on ‘the Special One’ especially when he subbed off Nemanja Matic only 26 minutes after he came on at half-time.
It has been suggested that Mourinho also had a series of arguments with club captain John Terry and vice-captain Branislav Ivanovic recently, but it seems both the player and the Portuguese manager have moved on from the incidents.
Terry revealed: “We have a big group of players and we have the best manager who we remain behind and we remain together.
“That is what you do in tough circumstances. I have been here a long time and I have seen managers come and go and if anyone is going to get us out of this hole it is going to be Jose Mourinho.
“And the players will remain together and fight, and keep fighting for the supporters because they were excellent on Saturday.”
Chelsea are now trailing league leaders Manchester City by a massive 10 points just eight games into the campaign, and will need something of a miracle to defend their Premier League crown.
