Jose Mourinho has been talking up all this week, some have made sense while others have been said on purpose to keep the attention on the manager rather than his team. One such comment was made during Mourinho’s pre-match conference against Aston Villa, when the Special one talked about his job safety and what circumstance will see his job get secured for next season.
Surprisingly, Mourinho thinks that a mid-table finish would seem him in charge of Chelsea next season. Speaking with BBC, Mourinho said: For me the important thing is the owner and the board’s message to myself.
“Before the statement came out, I was having the feedback from the owner and the board. So the statement was not something new for me.
“I met the owner before dinner so, when I went to dinner, I knew.
“But even before that, I knew what brought me here. I know the conversation we had two years ago.
“I know what made me sign a new contract, and the reasons why the owner and the board decided to give me a new contract.
“They didn’t have to. I had still two more years, so they didn’t have to give me a new contract.
“After a bad result – which is not the first bad result of the season, obviously I was not happy, far from it. But I never thought about being sacked.”
It is rather hard to believe that Roman Abramovic, after sacking all the managers for lack of results would stick with Mourinho and allow him one complete season without any substantial trophy and a mid-table finish. If Mourinho is making an assumption here, then he is heading in a wrong direction.
