José Mourinho Says: ‘I Don’t Like The Way Chelsea Have Played For Two Years’: Nightly Soccer Report

Jose Mourinho is the master of the blame game. After three defeats on the trot for Chelsea, and the worst start to a Premier League campaign in ten years, Mourinho is blaming everything from the playing style and lack of maturity in his squad rather than taking the blame for his poor starting lineup selections and unwillingness to give Juan Mata a key role in the team.

Mourinho said today during his Chelsea press conference before tomorrow’s 12:30pm ET game against Fulham:

“I don’t like the way Chelsea were playing the last couple of years; the club doesn’t like it and we want to change,” he said. “We want to play a different style. The past is history – even my past. I’m here like I’ve just arrived.

“I know the steps I have to take; when you want to build something different, the players are adapted and comfortable – it is more difficult.

“If you want to do something different and the results are not good, there will be question marks.”

Could we have another situation where the sudden changes made by Mourinho to this Chelsea side have the same impact that Andre Villas-Boas’s changes had on the Blues when he was manager?

Mourinho may not have liked the way Chelsea played in the past two years, but in that time, Chelsea won the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League — two trophies that Mourinho was unable to win with Chelsea during his first stint as manager at Stamford Bridge.
