“if anyone is going to get us out of this hole it is going to be Jose Mourinho”.
Self-acclaimed as “The Happy One”, Mourinho has also described the current result as the worst is his career.
“this is the worst period in my career with the worst results in my career. said mourinho. “it is something that is helping me to better” it is a great negative experience; I’ve had big challenges. I am not saying it’s a hard challenge, I’m saying it’s the worst period. I have never lost so many matches”.
However, the club have issued a public statement concerning their position on Mourinho status as the manager on their official web site. The statement read:
“The club wants to make it clear that Jose continues to have our full support”. “As Jose has said himself, results have not been good enough and the team’s performances must improve. However, we believe that we have the right manager to turn this season around and that he has the squad to do it.
