Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed his unhappiness with the entire team, while naming a few of his top stars, after Chelsea began their Premier League title defence in disappointing fashion.
The Blues drew their first game at home to Swansea City and lost their second to title rivals Manchester City after poor performances from a number of his top players including skipper John Terry, who was substituted at half time during the clash at the Etihad Stadium.
The Portuguese manager has admitted that his team needs to pull up their socks and deliver better performances. Some of his criticism was even directed at himself, and he has vowed to improve his performances and deliver better results in the coming games.
"I'm not happy at all, I'm not happy with anyone," Mourinho said, as quoted by the Guardian.
"Not one [of the team]. We have one point from two matches and, first of all, I'm not happy with my own form because I'm used to getting better results than I'm getting now."
"I'm not happy with Branislav Ivanovic's form, with Gary Cahill's form, with John Terry's form, with César Azpilicueta or Cesc Fàbregas' form, Eden Hazard's or Nemanja Matic's. But, for me, the first thing is I'm not happy with my own form," the former Real Madrid manager explained.
Mourinho has commended his team for responding to their poor start and is confident that his team will bounce back as like him they are always unhappy when they lose games.
"The way to improve is to do what we've been doing this week: being more active in training; watching more videos of the opposition and our own performances; working harder."
"Even me. I go to the gym every day now to get fitter. Maybe I need more 'action' on the touchline, so I need to be fitter. I don't like to lose, and the players have the same mentality I do, so we are not happy," he added.
