Jose Mourinho addressed the media at Cobham ahead of Sunday’s game against Norwich City, with the Portuguese stressing the importance of winning our final two matches in the Barclays Premier League.
Mathematically, it remains possible for the Blues to win the title after last week’s win at Liverpool, although we need both Brendan Rodgers’s side and Manchester City to suffer a defeat, while we need to take maximum points.
For Mourinho, however, there are plenty of reasons to ensure we bring the curtain down on our campaign in a positive manner.
‘They came back like they have to, obviously not jumping but with the feeling they had a good Champions League campaign,’ he said when pressed on how the mood was in the camp following our defeat to Atletico Madrid.
‘They did everything they could, in football and life you have to react to disappointments. Today we tried to build a training session where they could recover some smiles, happiness and good feelings because we have two more matches to play and we have to do it in a professional way to finish the season with the feeling of victory.
‘Imagine if we are not champions because we don’t win these two matches, it wouldn’t be a good feeling for the players. What we have to do is win both games, we’re playing against two teams who desperately need the three points – Norwich and Cardiff.
‘We also need the points to guaranteed third and a Champions League spot next season. It’s the last match at home and the fans, with the support they’ve given us this season, deserve us to finish our campaign at home with a victory.’
