Chelsea captain, John Terry, has given support to Jose Mourinho on the manager's frequent attacks on referees after games.
Mourinho was on Monday was given a one-match stadium ban and fined 40,000 pounds by the Football Association after admitting to a charge of misconduct during Chelsea's 2-1 loss to Wet Ham.
Speaking in Chelsea's pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday's Champions League game against Dynamo Kyiv, Terry said:
“If you guys [the media] want honest answers after a game, give them a bit of freedom.”
Terry expressed confidence that Chelsea will turn around their current form and climb up the table.
He bared his mind on reports that a Chelsea player confessed that he would rather lose than win for Mourinho.
“Collectively us as players, the club, the fans, we will bounce back from this and we’ll climb up that table.
“I’m sure of that.
“If a player said that [they would rather lose than win for Mourinho] they wouldn’t get out of the dressing room.”
He also stated that he hopes to replicate his last season's form.
“John Terry can be better and I need to be back where I was last season”
