Radamel Falcao is confident Jose Mourinho will improve Chelsea – and is also confident his own form can turn round at Stamford Bridge.
The Colombian striker has scored just once for the Blues – in the 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace – since his summer loan move from Monaco.
His poor performances have mirrored those of his club, who have won just two of their eight Premier League games so far and sit 16th in the table.
Mourinho was the subject of a public vote of confidence from Chelsea earlier this week, the club issuing a statement saying: “We believe that we have the right manager to turn this season around and that he has the squad with which to do it.”

And Falcao is sure the Portuguese manager will soon arrest the team’s decline and feels he is also making improvements to his own game.
“Mourinho’s a great coach. He is ambitious and a winner,” said Falcao. “He has great skills to train us but results have not helped us.
“We have the quality and skills to change this and reverse the situation. I’m still fully motivated.
“My moment will come. I’m fine, I’m improving and increasingly I feel better.”
