I Am Not Worried About My Job – Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is unconcerned over suggestions his time as Chelsea manager could soon end if results do not improve.

The 52-year-old Portuguese is in his second spell as Blues boss and was subject to the first managerial vote of confidence of Roman Abramovich’s 12-year ownership on Oct. 5.

That came less than two months after Mourinho had signed a contract extension as manager until June 2019, with the caveat results had to improve.

The reigning Premier League champions have won one game since — against free-falling Aston Villa — and sit 15th in the table with five defeats in 10 games ahead of Saturday’s match with Liverpool, prompting suggestions he could be axed.

“I am not worried about my job. I am not worried about my future,” Mourinho said. “I don’t spend one second of my day thinking about it.

“It looks like [the media] want to put a lot of pressure on me in relation to that, where you can’t do it. You can’t do it.”

Mourinho says his concern is reviving Chelsea, who saw their Capital One Cup defence end in a penalty shootout defeat at Stoke on Tuesday night.

The three matches before November’s international break could be key, though, with Liverpool’s visit to Stamford Bridge followed by a Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev — one of two sides ahead of Chelsea at the halfway point of Group G — and a Premier League trip to Stoke.

Mourinho added: “I am worried about the results. I am worried about winning [on Saturday]. I am worried about qualifying for the next round of the Champions League.
