Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has said that he has been embarrassed by the vociferous support given to him by the club’s support as he struggled to get the side’s season back on track, the Daily Express reports.
Despite several reports stating otherwise, Mourinho seems secure in his position as manager despite the fact that the club have not managed to crawl out of the bottom half of the table all season.
But he has insisted that the support from the stands is giving both him and the players hope of being able to correct the situation in the near future.
“Sometimes I feel a bit embarrassed to be fair, their support is more than I could expect after such a bad season,” Mourinho said. “I know that last season we were champions but this season has been really bad.
“But we like to play at Stamford Bridge – the fans are being unbelievable. I even feel a little bit unsure how to react when they sing my name and I feel a bit embarrassed because I do not know how to react.
“When you are the champion you wave and share the emotion. I know for sure the Chelsea fans don’t need to be reminded of the memories, that is for sure.
“They don’t need that special vitamin to improve memories, because if not they would not sing the Special One to me, or to treat the players the way they do. For sure we want to play at Stamford Bridge and that is not a problem for us.”
