Mourinho Gets Backing From Chelsea Legend

Jose Mourinho is still the right man for the Chelsea job and will turn the club's fortunes around, according to a Blues icon.

Mourinho: My Players Made The Critics Look Stupid

The English champions, who were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Stoke City on Tuesday night, have won just three Premier League matches this season and sit in 15th position in the league table.

Former midfielder Frank Lampard is adamant the Chelsea of old will soon return and that Mourinho will figure out how to get the best out of his underperforming players.

"Chelsea will be back," the 37-year-old told Sky Sports.

"It's a blip. You don't expect them to lose that many games at the start of the season, but they'll turn it around. 

"(Mourinho) is a winner, his record says that and it will be hurting him. But I have no doubt about his ability and it will get him through.

"They have great ability in the squad. It'll be difficult to win the Premier League now, but they'll move up to where they belong soon.

"There are too many players who are not quite in form at the moment and that's why they are having problems."

Lampard, who played under Mourinho in both the Portuguese tactician's spells at Chelsea, now plies his trade for New York City FC in the MLS.
