Jamie Carragher has insisted that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has to end his “embarrassing” post-match interviews.

The Portuguese refused to make any comments to BT Sport following his side’s 3-1 at the hands of Liverpool on Saturday while he has blasted officials Jon Moss and Bobby Madley in recent weeks for decisions in his side’s losses to West Ham United and Southampton.

He then went into his post-match conference with the written Press where he seemed more intent on asking them what they thought of the game rather than expressing his own views.

In recent weeks, Mourinho has pointed the finger at officials and decisions going against his side, rather than their dismal displays.

And Jamie Carragher believes the Portuguese must stop looking for excuses if he is to arrest Chelsea’s incredible slump.

“He has to change some things and these interviews have got to stop because they’re embarrassing him and they’re embarrassing the club,” he told Sky Sports.

“Maybe he’s trying to create a siege mentality but I don’t think the players would be totally agreeing with the manager, blaming referees. Chelsea was very poor at the weekend.

“This paranoia has got to stop that ‘the world is against them’ because they’re not.”

Instead, Carragher believes more scrutiny needs to be placed on the players, who he claims have been ‘shocking’ in recent games.

“I’m a massive fan of Jose Mourinho and I’d like him to stay because they’s been too many changes in the past at Chelsea,” he added.

“These players performances have been shocking. It’s about time we took more of a look at them. The manager is always in the spotlight.”

Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard was one of Carragher’s guests on the show and even the Stamford Bridge favourite admitted that results have to improve for the Premier League champions after Liverpool piled on their misery.

Lampard said: “He has the best record of any Chelsea manager and is a proven world class manager.

“I hope they do stick with him, but results have got to change now.”

Chelsea is 15th in Premiere League after the 11 matches in this season.
