´Mourinho can´t live with defeat´ – Carvalho

Former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho insists manager Jose Mourinho is the right man to turn the club’s fortunes around.

Premier League champions Chelsea have endured a season to forget, languishing in 14th position following Saturday’s shock 1-0 loss at home to AFC Bournemouth.


Mourinho is facing an uncertain future with Chelsea 17 points adrift of leaders Leicester City, though the Londoners are top of Champions League Group G heading into this week’s final matchday.

Monaco veteran Carvalho, who spent six years at Stamford Bridge – three of those under Mourinho – has thrown his support behind the Portuguese.

“Mourinho can’t live with defeat, that’s why he isn’t doing great,” the 37-year-old told Cadena Ser.

“Despite that, I think he’s the right man to turn things around at Chelsea.

“If they qualify, I think that Chelsea can go a long way in the Champions League. They aren’t doing great in the Premier League, but they can knock out anyone in Europe.”

Chelsea host second-placed Porto in London on Wednesday.
