There is “no chance” Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will leave the club, according to his agent Jorge Mendes.
Mourinho eased the pressure on himself as Chelsea earned a late 2-1 win over Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League on Wednesday night, but the champions have lost six of their 11 Premier League matches and sit in 15th spot with any real hope of retaining their title gone.
The Stamford Bridge faithful voiced their support for Mourinho, who has gone on record saying he will not quit from the club, on Wednesday night and he revealed he was “amazed” and humbled by their support.
And the Portuguese boss’ long-term adviser Mendes has reiterated the fact that his client will not walk away from The Bridge.
“He doesn’t need to prove anything to anybody,” Mendes told BBC Sport.
“He knows what to do. Many people are saying these things but there is no chance [he will leave]. He will solve the problem. He is the best.
“At FC Porto he won the Europa League, the league, the Champions League. He won everything.
“After that, in Chelsea he was amazing. After 50 years he won the league and everyone was very happy with him.
“At Inter Milan, nobody expected Inter could win the Champions League – no way. Even the quarter-finals seemed quite impossible.
“At Real Madrid against the best team in the world he still won the league. He is special.
“The reaction from the supporters tells you everything. They like him.”
