Would Chelsea fans back Mourinho if he refused Ronaldinho?

Chelsea captain John Terry has said that Ronaldinho would be an excellent signing for his team , but that he would have to subscribe to his teams work ethic. Chelsea fans , wuld you take Ronaldinho even if he didn’ defend? The Chelsea captain said:

“It was exciting seeing the link with him and it would be a great acquisition to get a player of that ability in… I’ve played against him, seen what he’s all about, and he’s such a difficult player to mark. He’d give us an option if he does come and it would be great for the Premiership to have a player like Ronaldinho here. He was close to going to Manchester United a few years ago but, for me personally and for everyone at Chelsea, it would be great to have him with us.”

Terry then gave a stark warning to Ronaldinhno and any other Flash Harrys that hungry hippo billionaire Abramovich is considering gobbling up:

“I’d like to think he could fit into the team, though he’d have to learn about the defensive duties expected of everyone…We’ve got wide men going forward but they’ve got defensive responsibilities as well. We’ve seen at times that Jose Mourinho has taken Shaun Wright- Phillips or Joe Cole off because they’ve not been doing their bit at the back. It takes players a month or so to learn that you have to track back and, if you don’t, then you come off. Once you’ve realised that it’s about a team and defending as well, you can attack as well and he can give us something that not many in the world can give us. I suppose if he’s doing what he’s so good at going forward, then perhaps the manager will let him off a little bit at the back, but we’d have to see.”

Would Ronaldinho cope with the patronizing month of crack-training, drilling the worlds best player on the art of defending?

The real question remains though would Chelsea back Mourinho’s stance if he didn’t sign Ronaldinho because he wouldn’t cover Cashley Cole on one of his meandering forays forward, no doubt daydreaming about frittering away his latest pay packet?
