Chelsea v PSG: Jose Mourinho should accept the blame if Chelsea fail to win a trophy this season, claims Johan Cruyff
The former Barcelona coach is bemused with Mourinho's declaration that PSG are favourites to go through the Champions league quarter-finals
Jose Mourinho is losing the Chelsea dressing room and should accept the blame himself if the club end the season trophyless, says the former Barcelona coach Johan Cruyff.
Cruyff has been critical of Mourinho’s tactics in the past, and he cannot understand Mourinho’s recent claim that Paris St-Germain are favourites to progress in the Champions League quarter-final second leg on Tuesday night.
Reported in the Evening Standard, Cruyff said: “PSG have a strong team with some great players. Chelsea have some great players as well, but Mourinho seems to disagree.
"It's always the same with him. When things are going well, it's the result of his good work, but the players are to blame when things are going badly. He already lost the dressing room at Real Madrid because of that and I can see the same happening at Chelsea.
"The problem with Mourinho is that he only cares about results. The result is more important than his players. He always thinks short-term and that's simply not my thing."
