Jose Mourinho explains his comments about Chelsea fans
The Chelsea boss has further explained his post-match comments after win against QPR
Jose Mourinho has moved to clarify his comments after he criticised the home Chelsea support during Saturday’s victory over Queens Park Rangers.
The Blues boss claimed that Stamford Bridge “felt like an empty stadium” during the Premier League clash in west London.
However, the Chelsea boss opted to explain his remarks as his side gear up for their Champions League clash against Maribor on Wednesday.
If I’m just a fan, what can I do to help? That’s just my view
“Everybody knows how much I love the club, how much I want the club to improve and how much I want to be part of the club for the future,” said Mourinho.
“When everybody knows that, even a moment of criticism has to be analysed with different eyes, with the eyes of someone who knows why I came back to Chelsea, why I’m here with my heart and why I want to stay for a long time.
“I’m just somebody that loves football a lot, I love my job and I’m lucky to do my job at a club I like so much and have such a connection. Maybe that makes me lead the club with a different kind of emotion.
“This is not just a job for me, it’s more than that because it’s Chelsea.
“Maybe I go a bit too far but I see myself in the stands watching Chelsea and I want to play, I want to help.
“If I’m not a player I cannot play, if I’m not the coach I can’t make decisions to move the game in our direction. If I’m just a fan, what can I do to help? That’s just my view.”
