Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has challenged owner Roman Abramovich to sack him after their 3-1 loss to Southampton at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
In his post-match comment, Mourinho, who recently signed a new long-term Chelsea contract accused Premier League and Champions League referees of being biased against Chelsea, and insisted he would not "run away".
"We are in such a bad moment. We should not be afraid to be honest. The referees are afraid to give decisions for Chelsea.
"If the FA want to punish me then punish me but it's not a problem for me.
"Referees are afraid to give decisions to Chelsea, clear penalties are not given to me because there's one and one and one.
"Even in the Champions League, which is a game with not three officials but five, we are not given a penalty in the last minutes.
"I am not running away. If the club wants to sack me, they have to sack me. I am more than convinced we will finish in top four.
"If they sack me they sack the best manager this club has had."Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
