Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has refused to back down over his scathing attack on Chelsea supporters after their 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers at the weekend, according to Sky
The Portuguese was heavily critical of the Stamford Bridge faithful for creating a less than intense atmosphere against struggling QPR as his side laboured to their eighth win of the campaign.
With the Blues top of the table – undefeated and six points clear of main rivals Manchester City, Mourinho cannot understand what he perceives to be a far too quiet atmosphere inside the stadium.
He said: “We are the team to get less support in home matches. When compared to my previous time I think it’s getting worse.
“I don’t question the passion and the love – I’m nobody to question that and I know clearly that is not true.
“I will always love them and respect them, but I don’t know (why the atmosphere is poor)”
Chelsea have won their five league games at home this season despite comments from their manager about fans.
Supporter representatives have claimed that prices have kept younger fans out of games and they are the ones who wold generate noise – the cheapest general sale ticket was £46 at the weekend.
Stamford Bridge next hosts a game towards the end of November against West Brom – again an opponent who Chelsea will be expected to overcome – and only time will tell if Mourinho sees a backlash over his comments.
