Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho had a simple message before their crucial match against Crystal Palace. “Three more points, let’s do it together.” His side was brilliant in every way through out the tournament, and on the day when a win would crown them the champions, they did not disappoint their fans and head coach.
The team mixed with young blood and experience made sure their manager is now has his name written beside three Premier League titles.
According to the official website of the Blues, Mourinho has no doubts about his side being worthy of a title win.
“When you work so hard and you are champions you feel you got what you deserved, it’s a good feeling. For me, it may be a special feeling because I’m not the smartest guy when it comes to choosing countries and clubs. I chose the most difficult league in Europe, I chose a club where I was happy before. I’m so happy to win another Premier League title in my second spell at the club.
“I will try for another one. The day I don’t feel the pressure to do it again, I will stop,” he said.
“What the players are feeling now is fantastic, they deserve it and now they can relax. Palace played like it was a crucial game for them and that was the pure feelings of football, we have to do the same in our three remaining matches.”
The Portuguese also admitted that despite they were convinced of winning the trophy this year, it was very important for them to keep their cool at certain times.
“On 1 January when we were level on points with City after a heavy defeat at Spurs, instead of being a turning point it was our last defeat. From that moment we haven’t had one single defeat. The team were always there, everybody knows we deserve it,” he said.
