Jose Mourinho: Season of woe for Mourinho and Chelsea

Jose Mourinho’s job is safe as he retains the “trust” of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, according to Blues technical director Michael Emenalo.

Emenalo, 50, who was appointed into his role in 2011, has offered support for embattled boss Mourinho after the club’s terrible start to the Premier League season.

Chelsea currently languish 16th in the Premier League table after losing seven of their first 12 games and Mourinho has featured heavily at the head of bookies’ sack race markets.

Currently only Swansea City boss Garry Monk is ahead of him in that particular market, but so far Abramovich has kept faith with Mourinho and Emenalo says his track record speaks volumes.

“Right now, the statement from the owner and from the board comes from a belief we are in a position to trust a manager who has delivered so much,” he told The Telegraph.

“We are in a position to trust a group of players who have delivered in the last couple of seasons. We are in a position to see there is light at the end of the tunnel and therein lies our confidence that we can get out of the situation.

“When it comes to decisions, we feel confident we have an owner who has a very good track record, who is astute at making decisions of this kind at the right time to get us to where we want to be.

“We have never put ourselves in a position where we second guess him. Part of the reasons he can make those decisions and be successful is because he has the information a lot of people don’t.

“He has the whole picture of what is happening at the club, not just from certain individuals but every sector of the club. When he needs to make a decision, he can make it.”

    not nice, ha ha I’ve got the image of Roman in the role of the Bond baddie stroking the Cat with Jose as the Cat.Lol!

    Much better press conference again though focussed, calm and not angry a step in the right direction at least in terms of pre match press conferences.

    Everything of course is still reliant on results though because Roman’s patience won’t last for ever.

    Jose denied any transfer business in January but of course he’s done that before too so we will have to wait and see. Cheers all 999
