Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has
accepted responsibility for his side’s shock 2-1 Champions League defeat
against FC Basel.
The 50-year-old has
challenged his players to show their ‘character’ when they return to

action in
the Premier League against Fulham on Saturday.

Blues owner Roman Abramovich paid
a visit to Mourinho’s dressing room after their 2-1 upset defeat at Stamford
Bridge, greeted by a manager who was content to accept blame for the upset
“I am the manager, I am
responsible for everything, especially in the bad moments,” Mourinho told Sky
“In the good moments I want
everyone to shine. In the bad moments, I want everyone to keep calm, to keep in
the shadow and let me take responsibility for that.
“Of course we are not happy, but
to play football in good moments is good fun and is easy for everybody. 
In the
difficult moment is when you see the man, when you see the character, the
personality. So let’s wait for Fulham and try to clean what we couldn’t do
“I will wake up at 7am in the
morning, I go to Cobham (Chelsea training ground) and try to get three points
against Fulham. 
In the Champions League, we go to Bucharest next and then we
have a double fixture against Schalke and we have to get the points we need to
make progress in the Champions League because we don’t want to be in the Europa
Mourinho insisted he did not
regret the changes he made to his line-up after he handed a debut to Willian
and dropped skipper John Terry to the bench, suggesting he needs to amend his
line-up on a regular basis.
“I rotate because I have to,”
stressed Mourinho. “I kept the structure of the team and the players must feel
the responsibility of fighting for positions and to give their best
performance. It was not individual performances that cost us this game.
“I’m not in shock. Football is a
game, sometimes you win sometimes you lose. You think you will win every game,
but the reality is that sometimes you don’t win. I’m not happy of course. We
have taken a step back in qualification, but we have to assume responsibility.
We have five games left and we have to finish in the top two.
“Basel played very well. They
defend very well. We had a lot of the ball, but we couldn’t create many, many
“We got into good attacking
positions, got lots of corners, but we couldn’t create chances in the first
half. Then Basel equalised at our best moment of the game. Oscar had an amazing
shot and we had some other good opportunities and after that, we were punished
“We are strong at defending
corners. Emotionally this is not a very mature team and when you are in a
difficult situation, they reacted with some heart, but it was not enough.”
