I have been betrayed – Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho

Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho has expressed frustration over the dismal performance by his side during the Monday night match against Leicester City at Kings Stadium.

In his post-match reaction, Mourinho said he felt betrayed by the players who did not show commitment during the match posting a lackluster performance.

“I feel my work was betrayed. I worked four days on this match, I prepared everything related to the opponent, I identified four movements where they score almost every one of their goals,” Mourinho is quoted on Telegraph as saying.

“My players got all that information in training in the last three days and in four types of situations that I identified, they conceded the first and the second goals.”

He said that he believes he did an amazing job last season and bough t great players though stating that the dismal show may be because the players cannot live up to the level of Chelsea.

The statement is a direct contract of Jose Mourinho’s comments last month where he said he was happy with his players.

Chelsea fell 2-1 to Leicester in their ninth defeat of the season with the home side getting their goals through Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez in the 34th and 48th minute respectively. The Blues scored their consolation goal through Loic Remy in the 77th minute.

The win sees Leicester climb top of the table with 35 points from 16 matches, while Chelsea are 16th with 15 points, just a point from relegation zone.
