Chelsea captain John Terry has backed Jose Mourinho as the man to guide the Blues into calmer waters after their shocking start to the Premier League season.
Mourinho’s side suffered their fourth Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday when they went lose 3-1 at home to Southampton, a result that leaves the West London side ten points off top of the table Man City.
Terry, who has been dropped for a number of games of late, insists that Chelsea players are behind Mourinho, stating;
“We have a big group of players and we have the best manager who we remain behind and we remain together.
“That is what you do in tough circumstances. I have been here a long time and I have seen managers come and go and if anyone is going to get us out of this hole it is going to be Jose Mourinho.
“The players will remain together and fight, and keep fighting for the supporters because they were excellent on Saturday.
“We are not in the familiar position we are normally in. We find ourselves in it and it is down to the group of players and the manager to get ourselves out of it and we must do that very soon.
“Generally I think we are looking low on confidence but we have a big group of players in that dressing room and we need to stand up, which we will do. There is no difference from last season.
“We need to be hungry like we were. Like many teams find, it is difficult to come back after winning the Premier League, we have seen it with Man City.
“We are suffering a bit of late but we have big characters in the dressing room and we will remain together along with the manager and get ourselves out of this.” Terry added in quotes reported by the Daily Mirror.
