Chelsea captain John Terry has credited Jose Mourinho as the reason for their ruthless second-half display, which helped the Blues to a 3-1 victory at the King Power Stadium, and take a step closer to the Premier League title.
The league leaders looked complacent in the first half, and had to watch as the relegation-threatened side made much of the running. The Foxes were rewarded when Marc Albrighton scored just before the break.
However, the away side got their act together in the second half, as goals from Didier Drogba, John Terry, and Ramires completed the turnaround, and took the side to within one win of their fourth title, and third under Mourinho.
According to the Daily Mirror, Terry revealed that the players received plenty of criticism for their manager at the break following their lacklustre display, and his words inspired their dominant performance.
“We got a telling off at half-time and we came out and played excellently in the second half. It wasn’t good enough in the first half but we got the three points,” he said.
The former England skipper continued to praise Mourinho, suggesting that he deserves a lot of credit for the work he has done since his return in 2013.
“What the manager has done with this side in the last two years is remarkable. We’ve been the best side all season. We deserve a lot of respect, we’ve been very good all year. Let’s hope we win it on Sunday,” he added.
