Jose Mourinho has admitted he is going through ‘the worst period’ of his career as his Chelsea side continue to struggle, reports the Daily Mail.
The Blues are currently 14th in the Premier League as their bid to defend their Premier League title falters, and the Stamford Bridge side were defeated 2-1 by FC Porto in midweek.
Now, Mourinho has revealed ‘I define it as the worst period in my career with the worst results in my career, which I see as a fantastic experience.’
‘Not one I want to repeat. I want it to finish tomorrow, but it’s a good experience in my career.’
He prepares to face former colleague Ronald Koeman on Saturday evening, as Southampton prepare to visit West London.
Chelsea have won just two of their opening seven matches, with losses against Crystal Palace, Manchester City and Everton – as well as Mourinho’s former club Porto in the Champions League.
The Portuguese heavily criticised some of his players for their first half performance against Newcastle United last week, which saw his side trailing 2-0 at one point.
The champions were able to salvage a 2-2 draw in the end, and will face a Southampton side in form following their 3-1 victory over Swansea.
