Jose Mourinho Explains Decision To Stop Watching Chelsea Match

Jose Mourinho

Former Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho, has shed light on his decision to abstain from attending games, despite residing merely ‘two minutes’ away from Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho experienced notable success during his two stints at Chelsea, clinching consecutive Premier League titles, along with FA Cup and two League Cup victories in his initial tenure.

Upon his return to west London in 2013, he secured a third Premier League trophy and another League Cup title before departing in 2015.

Recent speculation suggested Mourinho could return for a third spell as Chelsea boss amid growing pressure on current manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Mourinho said:

‘I’ve always kept myself apart from any unethical behaviour.’

‘In London, I live two minutes from Chelsea’s stadium, from my house you can hear the goals and people’s demonstrations.

‘The day the stadium started singing my name, I stopped going to football. I have to go to other stadiums.

‘It takes 20-30 minutes from my [other] house to [Benfica’s stadium] Luz. I went to two or three games.

‘They started asking questions like [will you become manager] and I’m not going anymore. They screwed my life up with those questions.’

Chelsea’s current squad is ‘not strong enough’ to work with Mourinho were the former Blues boss to return to Stamford Bridge, William Gallas has warned.

‘With Jose, you have to give him the right players, it’s that simple,’ Gallas said.

‘You have to give him warriors and the right players who want to fight and who want to make sacrifices and aren’t scared to suffer.

If Chelsea gave him these types of players, he would be a great choice.

‘I don’t know the players so well but I think some of the players aren’t strong enough to work with Mourinho.

With Mourinho, you also have to fight for your place in training and I think some of Chelsea’s players are too soft.’

Chelsea and Tottenham face off at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night, each eager for a victory to secure a spot in European competition for the next season.
