Chelsea may have been dumped out of the Champions League this week, but he still has a self professed ‘unshakable belief’ that his side will bounce back to lift the Premier League title this term, according to the Daily Mirror.
Mourinho held a crisis meeting with his players following the defeat to PSG on Wednesday to ensure that they’re season doesn’t careen off the rails.
And the Special One now believes that following the 35 minute meeting with the squad at their Cobham training ground, he believes that their first response will now be to win the Premier League title.
“I think our answer is going to be good. I really believe we are going to win,” said Mourinho.
“I have the same belief in these players. Unshakeable. Absolutely. Absolutely.
“They responded (in the meeting) the way I expected: open communication. Nobody afraid to speak, nobody shy. Not everybody (spoke), but good opinions, different opinions: one opinion from a goalkeeper, another from a striker.
“Their opinions were based on what they felt on the pitch, different from person to person. People on the bench had a different vision watching from the outside. And we discussed. We closed the chapter.
“What we can do now for ourselves and our club is win the Premier League. 11 matches to play, only one competition. Our situation is good. It’s better than anyone else’s. Everybody would love to be in our position.
“This is what we want to do. I closed with the players the chapter on the Champions League. We closed the chapter, but we still have the book to write. We have 11 more matches to finish the book. Let’s see if the last page of the book is with the Premier League trophy in their hands.
“Chelsea are top of the league since day one. Chelsea are not playing at the same level now as they were for many months, but we have played better than anybody for a long time.
“People were saying Chelsea were a candidate to win the Champions League because we were playing fantastically, and could win every competition.
“We cannot play fantastically all season. I don’t know one single team who play fantastic all season. We had our lowest point in terms of performance in a moment where we couldn’t have it. We lost a game. We are out of the competition.
“I always react well to set-backs. We are in the most difficult domestic league to win. But that’s what we want.
“We also spoke in that meeting about our future: to try and win the Premier League and, if we do that, a season with a Premier League and a Capital One Cup is a brilliant season. A brilliant season.”
