Mourinho defiant despite Chelsea defeat

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has stated that he is not worried about his team’s latest loss and will not walk away from the club despite being under pressure.

The Blues have lost three of their opening five Premier League games this season and were beaten 3-1 by Everton yesterday at Goodison Park, as Steven Naismith hit a hat-trick against the English champions.

Pressure is growing on the Stamford Bridge club and their manager, with many already questioning whether the champions can defend their crown this season.

Mourinho has stated that he enjoys his job and has no thoughts about ending his tenure with the West London club.

“Pressure is being a refugee,” the Chelsea manager is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

“I enjoy my job, it is a pleasure and an honour to be in charge of Chelsea, even if the results are the worst of my career. I am not feeling pressure.

“The results are not adapted to my quality and my status but I am coping well with the situation. I am the best man for the job. I don’t think there is a better man to come in and do it.”

Chelsea were dominant last season but have struggled to replicate their best football this season, with defeats against Crystal Palace, Manchester City and Everton hurting the Blues.

The English side return to European action in the Champions League in midweek.
