The Blues suffered their four defeat of the season when they went down at the hands of Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

The Portuguese was engaged in a long post match interview, where he spoke about a number of thing, most notably his position at the club and the referees.

"No way I resign. No way. Why? Because Chelsea cannot have a better manager than me," Mourinho told reporters.

"I want the best for my club and the best for my club is for me to stay."

"I can also know what you are thinking, what you are saying in the studio. People imagine, what is going to happen, what is not going to happen. I want to make it clear: one, I don't run away.

"Two, if the club want to sack me, they have to sack me because I am not running away from my responsibilities, from my team and from my conviction.

"Third, even more important that the first and the second, I think this is a crucial moment in the history of this club. Do you know why? Because if the club sacks me, they sack the best manager that this club had and secondly, the message is again the message that bad results, the manager is guilty."

Mourinho also had a go at the referees, after his side were denied a penalty in the second half while they were trailing.

"When we are at the top I understand that there is quite a big pleasure on putting us down.

"But when you are down you need to be a bit honest and to make clear that the referees are afraid to give decisions for Chelsea.

"The result [was] 1-1, there is a huge penalty and, once more, we don't get. A penalty is a crucial moment in the game with the result 1-1.

"I repeat, if the FA want to punish me, they can punish me, they don't punish other managers, they punish me - it's not a problem for me.
