Chelsea Manager Mourinho Slams Club’s Fans And Brands Stamford Bridge An Empty Stadium

Mourinho launches astonishing attack following narrow victory over Queens Park Rangers.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wasn’t entirely impressed by the performance of his team in either of their victories this week, against Shrewsbury Town and Queens Park Rangers, but talkSPORT are reporting that the club’s supporters have come under fire from a man seemingly not content with just being clear at the top of the Premier League table and unbeaten this season.

The Blues laboured to a win over struggling QPR at Stamford Bridge this afternoon and, despite their lead at the top of the Premier League being extended, Mourinho felt that he needed more from his supporters:

“Everyone knows how much I feel connected to this club and the fans. At this moment it’s difficult for us to play at home though, because playing here is like playing in an empty stadium.”

“I was today looking around and it was empty, but not in terms of people because it was obviously full. That’s what frustrating.”

Mourinho is far from the first Premier League manager to lay into his own supporters, with Andre Villas-Boas once having criticised the home fans at Tottenham Hotspur for creating a difficult atmosphere for his side to play in.
