Chelsea fans hit back at Mourinho over atmosphere complaints

After Chelsea's impressive 2-1 victory against QPR at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Jose Mourinho didn't seem in a very optimistic mood and not only did he criticise his players after witnessing a "poor performance" but the Portuguese man also slammed the Chelsea faithful for a "weak atmosphere".

The 51-year-old claimed that it felt as though the game was being played in "an empty stadium" as the Blues fans did not become vocal at any stage in the game, despite another league victory against QPR.

But now, the Chelsea fans have given Mourinho a taste of his own critical medicine and have put the ticket prices to blame on the lack of atmosphere at Stamford Bridge. With the most expensive adult ticket standing at a staggering £75 and the cheapest at £46 as confirmed by Chelsea Supporters' Trust chairman Tim Rolls, supporters of the league leaders were reluctant to attend the match against league strugglers Queens Park Rangers who have won just twice all season.

The cheapest of all general sale ticket prices went in the favour of under-18s who could enjoy the match at still a large sum of money, £18 considering they were only facing Harry Redknapp's Premier League new boys.

Kevin Kilnan commented on a Match Of The Day Facebook page: "It's been like it for years, even before Mourinho first came to the club 10 years ago, the real fans have been priced out of Stamford Bridge."

Other fans said: "there is more atmosphere at away games for some reason" whereas others stated "Chelsea and City - two teams thrust into glory with terrible support."

A recent survey by the BBC showed that Chelsea's most expensive season ticket stands at £1,250 which probably explains where they get the money from to by players like Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa.

A Chelsea spokesperson said on Sunday: "we are working closely with the fans to increase the atmosphere at home and we will continue to do so until it is sorted" as she protected Mourinho's views.
