Mourinho back in form after 4-0 triumph over Maccabi Tel Aviv

It always feels like being at cloud nine when you win a match after severe criticisms for your bad form especially if you are English defending champions. Yes, you guessed it right we are talking about Chelsea and their latest 4-0 Champions league triumph over Maccabi Tel Aviv at home. If we look at major sports dailies of last few days, they were grossly filled with reports mentioning and predicting how another loss could mean for the Blues and when North Londoners proved they are right in form over here with a stunning show Wednesday night, everyone is silent especially critics who have until been barking over teammates and manager. The win also gave an opportunity to boss Jose Mourinho to present himself in his known style and lambast everyone who has recently been after them and former player Steven Gerrard is one of them who said lots of things for his former side show in recent days. The victory was powered by brilliant shots of Willian, Oscar, Diego Costa, and Cesc Fabregas, in fact, it was the first goal for Costa playing for Chelsea at UEFA tourney.

Talking about the recent days and what he felt when fans and some so called experts of the game were asking his resignation, Portuguese said after the game, “I forgot the feeling. For so long we don’t win a game, so good, a good feeling. I am a fantastic manager when I win matches and I am a fantastic manager when I lose matches. I prefer that than they say ‘Mourinho out’ and they boo me and so on. It shows they don’t read papers or they don’t have short memories. If they don’t read papers they support me. If they don’t have short memories, they support me.

“We won four Premier Leagues, three with him and one with his team. This guy is not bad. Let’s support the guy. We have a chance to win the fifth. Steven is wrong. I have a very good relationship with him. Sometimes we contact by SMS. But he’s wrong, because we have no problems.”

Adding about their impressive show on European front despite having a bad start at home, 52-year-old added, “It’s bad news for English football. I’m not happy with that. I want Man City, Man United and Arsenal to lose in the Premier League — not in the Champions League. For all of us to wake up after a defeat, to go to Cobham again, to train again after a defeat, two days before a derby against Arsenal, I could imagine how difficult it would be for everyone.”
