Jose Mourinho held a conference with members of his coaching staff on the pitch at Stamford Bridge following the Blues’ 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, where he warned Chelsea can NOT afford to lose their next Premier League match.
They travel to Stoke next Saturday in the day’s televised late kick-off, following their home Champions League tie against Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday.
A double from Philippe Coutinho and a Christian Benteke strike cancelled out Ramires’ early header to condemn the Blues to their sixth defeat in only 11 Premier League games this term at the weekend.
The Portuguese took the unusual step of conducting a meeting on the pitch following the full-time whistle, after the crowd had left the stadium.
Mirror Football, with the help of a lip reader, has taken a look at the clip and can reveal some of what Mourinho was saying to his assistants.
“It’s not … and we need to get it, the next one its really … make sure … must NOT lose that one next week,” he said.
Apparently referring to the referee’s decision not to send off Lucas Leiva for a second yellow card, Mourinho added: “You know, it’s not good and it’s the sixth (defeat) but the problem was the … he didn’t give … the yellow when he … and I don’t know what will happen.”
The camera angle then changed, and Mourinho seemingly stressed the importance of the team sticking together.
He continued: “But you must all be together and … but I cannot say to them that it’s not, just erm, not right.”
