Chelsea Situation Not Good For Mourinho - Oscar
The Portuguese coach is under huge pressure
as their Premier League title defence lies in
tatters, but the Stamford Bridge boss has been
backed by two of his Brazilian stars.
Brazil internationals Oscar and Ramires have
admitted that "the situation is not good" for
Jose Mourinho following Chelseaâ€™s 3-1 defeat
to Liverpool, but remain united behind the
Chelseaâ€™s worst ever start to a Premier League
season continued on Saturday as Liverpool
came back from Ramiresâ€™ early opener down to
overcome the title holders at Stamford Bridge.
Philippe Coutinho notched a brace before
Christian Benteke piled more pressure on
Mourinho, but Ramires and Oscar insist that
â€œeverybodyâ€ at Chelsea is still behind the
under-fire Portuguese coach.
â€œEverybody tries to help [Mourinho] but the
situation is not good for Jose and for the
players and the fans but for Chelsea, we need
to start winning again,â€ Oscar told the clubâ€™s
â€œIt is very disappointing because we played so
well in the first half but at the end of it, Coutinho
scored but we tried, we came back for the
second half and we played well again but we
had a lot of bad luck. They scored two and it
was a difficult game for us.â€
Lucas Leiva was fortunate to remain on the
pitch after controversially avoiding a second
booking for tripping Ramires â€“ an incident which
the Liverpool midfielder later praised referee
Mark Clattenburg for â€“ and Oscar feels Jurgen
Kloppâ€™s side got more fortune on Saturday.
â€œWe tried everything all the game but everything
was for Liverpool," he said. â€œLiverpool played
the second half better than us.
â€œCoutinho played well, we tried everything but
we didnâ€™t win. We need to keep going.â€
Goalscorer Ramires was also frustrated with
the result â€“ leaving the title holders adrift in
15th position, 14 points off table toppers
Manchester City - but says that the Chelsea
squad will remain together despite their poor
â€œWe started very well and in the second half we
had a chance to score a second, but we didnâ€™t
score and they did and then they win,â€ he said.
â€œIt is difficult because when we lose a game,
everyone is sad in the dressing room.
â€œThe manager didnâ€™t say anything because it
was not the time but on Sunday we have a
conversation and he will show to us what we
did in the game.
â€œWe try to help him [Mourinho] on the pitch - we
couldnâ€™t help him on Saturday but we will try
every match to win because this is a group and
a team and if we lose, Jose loses as well so we
are all together.
â€œWe need to play like we played before to win
