Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho welcomed the club’s official backing earlier this week.
Mourinho has thanked the club for supporting him during their current slump.
“I’m really proud of it,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “It shows the faith Abramovich has in the manager who has won three Premier League titles with this club. I thank him and continue my work.”
“I don’t know what’s wrong. Chelsea’s results right now are truly awful. I cannot, nor do I want to hide the reality.
“And I’m struggling to find an explanation. But I can assure you this: I’m working harder than ever before and we will get through this.”
