Chelsea manager ready to walk away if players lose trust
Jose Mourinho will walk away from Chelsea Football Club – but only if he loses the trust of the players.
The Portuguese survived a crisis meeting on Saturday evening following their 3-1 home defeat to Southampton, with the board telling him his job is safe for now.
Defeat at Stamford Bridge this weekend leaves the Blues 16th in the table and already 10-points off Manchester City, but Mourinho is adamant he can turn things around.
John Terry spoke in the wake of the Saints defeat insisting that Mourinho was the right person to turn the season around, and the Special One himself is still positive the season can be saved.
However, he has admitted that if the players start to lose trust in him, that’s when he will walk away from the club.
Players Hold the Key
“People can say what they want. People should ask the players and not go with fake sources,” said Mourinho.
“Go straight to the players. If they tell you they don’t trust me, that is the only thing that can make me resign.”
