Mourinho hits out at Chelsea home support

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has hit out at the Stamford Bridge support following his side’s narrow 2-1 victory over struggling QPR yesterday.

The outspoken Blues boss said it felt at times that the game was being played in an “empty stadium”.

“Everyone knows how much I feel connected to this club and the fans,” he told talkSPORT.

“At this moment it’s difficult for us to play at home, though, because playing here is like playing in an empty stadium.

“The team then starts playing like it’s a quiet, soft game at home.

“It’s difficult to get that strong start where the players, team and fans at Stamford Bridge (are all together).

“I was today looking around and it was empty, but not in terms of people because it was obviously full. That’s what is frustrating.”
Mourinho was also unhappy with his team’s performance against a QPR side who have struggled all season and are currently second from bottom in the Premier League table.
“My team didn’t play well or well enough or so well as I was expecting,” he added.

“We had periods of good football, not consistently. I was expecting more.

“I’m happy with the points. I think we deserved (the points), no doubt.

“But one thing is deserve and another thing is deserve and play very, very well, which we didn’t.

“With our quality I would expect us to be stronger and to get a different result.”
