Mourinho's lonely

Jose Mourinho might appear to be a paragon of self-confidence and the definition of assurance, but he’s admitted that he is struggling in the modern game.

Surprising as it may be, the Special One described himself as ‘lonely’ at the top, claiming he lived in a different world - one that meant he wasn’t ‘with the power’.

“I live in a different world. I’m not with the power. I’m not with the power. I’m a lonely guy in this modern world of football,” Mourinho said, as per the Irish Times.

“I do my work. I’m not a politician, I’m not a PR, I don’t care what people think about me. I don’t, you know, I’m just what I am. When I am in a great moment it looks like nothing’s happened; when I am in a bad moment, I pay for this a little bit. I don’t have many friends in the football world.”

It could well have something to do with the fact that his Chelsea team has started this campaign very poorly indeed, although Mourinho’s never been one to shy away from mind-games, so it’s a difficult one to discern.

Falcao struggles

Moving on, Mourinho has also admitted Radamel Falcao needs to do more but dismissed the idea that the Colombia international might move on in the January transfer window.

The Chelsea boss said Falcao needed to be better than Diego Costa if he was to start. Unlikely, given that he’s only got one goal to his name this term.

Quadruple 'possible'

Lastly, Mourinho might very well be lonely but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still confident of winning major competitions this year - yes, that’s in spite of the Blues’ current league position.

He told how because the campaign was yet in its early stages Chelsea had a chance of walking away with an incredible quadruple. We can’t say we agree.
