After Chelsea drew 1-1 away to Maribor, manager Jose Mourinho believes his side we unfocused until they conceded the first goal, reports BBC
“Many times surprises happen when people are not fully focused, when they believe the game can’t be a difficult one. Only when Maribor scored did the players realise the danger. If I cannot convince the players that the game is difficult and you have to play from minute one, obviously it’s my responsibility,” he said.
Chelsea have dropped points in two of their four games in the Champions League, and could have sealed their place in the last-16 with a win against the Slovenians on Wednesday. Mourinho certainly won’t be happy that he will have to once again name his best side for their next European clash to ensure they get the job done.
