Mourinho: I'm not running away, Chelsea cannot have a better manager than me (Video)

Just like the epic rant during his post-match interview with Sky Sports, Jose Mourinho came out fighting in his press conference after another Chelsea 1-3 home loss to Southampton.

The Chelsea manager emphasized on the fact that he is the best manager for the job at Stamford bridge.

Mourinho also discussed the substitution of substitute Nemanja Matic as well as how Roman Abramovich is very rarely public with his thoughts.

Also contained on the video below are the thoughts of Southampton boss Ronald Koeman.

Watch Jose Mourinho’s presser from after Chelsea 1 – Southampton 3 below, this is followed by a transcript of the interview…

“No way I resign. No way. Why? Because Chelsea cannot have a better manager than me. There are many managers in the world that belong to my level, but not better. But not better. So no chance I run away. Why? For two reasons. One, because I have my professional pride, and I know that I am very good at my job, and secondly because I like this club very much. If that’s not the case, it could be different, but in the accumulation of both situations, I want the best for my club, and the best for my club is for me to stay. So, I stay.”

(Question – Was it humiliating for Nemanja Matic to be substituted after coming on at half-time?)
“It was not humiliating. I don’t do that to anyone in football and in life. It’s something that if I do, I do without any intention and it was not the case. With the players I leave a situation that is not easy, which is (that) I like them, I trust them, I know that they are good players, but some of them are really in a difficult moment and Matic is one of them. He’s not playing well, he’s not sharp defensively, he’s making mistakes with the ball. Not the best decisions.”

4. 02:08 SOUNDBITE (English) Jose Mourinho, Chelsea manager:

(Question – Should the owner Roman Abramovich be more public with his opinions?)

“No, not at all. I think the owner’s profile all over these years not to speak, I think is fabulous. I would love to do the same. I would love to be a manager and have the right of no words, no press conferences, nothing. So I think the owner has that privilege and I think he’s fantastic. I don’t think the owner needs a word, not even the club or the board. Nobody. I think not at all.”

5. 02:51 SOUNDBITE (English) Jose Mourinho, Chelsea manager:

(on out of form players)

“I cannot name the players, I cannot say ‘Peter and Carl and Anthony.’ I cannot say, but clearly it is easy to see that some players are in difficulties, and as a manager you have that situation of ‘I like them, I trust them, I keep them, I give them trust’ or I drop, I change, I put some pressure.”
