Chelsea morning news: Mourinho attacked, refuses to back down over fan criticism

José Mourinho Celebrates

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

The Chelsea Supporters Trust have slammed Jose Mourinho for his comments about Chelsea fans.

Mourinho said after the win against QPR that playing at Stamford Bridge was almost like playing in an empty stadium.

“The manager's criticisms were slightly ill-advised because the fans pay good money to watch highly paid footballers,” said Tim Rolls of the CST.

Mourinho has refused to back down over his comments, suggesting that the situation is worse than during his first spell at the club.

“We are the team to get less support in home matches. When compared to my previous time I think it's getting worse,” he said.

Jose Mourinho has praised three aspects of Oscar’s performance against QPR over the weekend.

The Chelsea boss has said that the Brazilian was Chelsea’s best player.

“I think Oscar was our best player. For 90 minutes he was our best player and not just for the goal. For the dynamic, for the intensity, for the transition,” said Mourinho.
