Bilic on Mourinho

bilicSlaven Bilic has spoken of his surprise at Jose Mourinho’s sacking

“I can only say about Mourinho that I’m definitely surprised. It was the subject of rumours for the last couple of months but I’m still surprised. When you are the best in the business you have many people who would like you to fail”

“It’s a big loss for the league and Premier League is going to miss him. I really hope he is not lost because we’ll miss him a lot. I don’t believe any player will deliberately have a bad training, not to mention a bad game. They are top professional players”

“Nobody knows if Jose would have turned it around. Chelsea are in an uncomfortable situation, but they are not panicking. I do believe he would have turned it. It’s not the only time this happened to a big club. It happened to Borussia Dortmund last season”

“Every time a new manager comes, it’s always at the start new energy and very positive and you get a couple of wins.There are more clubs or teams sacking their managers when situations like this occur, than those who stick with their managers. Ten years ago you were laughing at Italian clubs sacking their managers every year and now it’s happening in the Premier League”

“Mourinho going shows nobody is safe. You have to enjoy your job, do your best and work hard for the club you are in”
