West Ham boss gives his backing to Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has received some words of support from a rival who recently dealt his Chelsea side a huge blow.

The Blues are languishing in 16th place in the Premier League, with defeat at West Ham knocking them back down after a mini-recovery in October.

But Slaven Bilic, who masterminded that victory, has given his backing to Mourinho.


“He’s won the league five, six months ago? And they [last] won the league five years ago. [And now this] after 12 games,” Bilic told Sport magazine.

“Okay, it’s not life-long; you don’t have that credit today. But, for him to get so many punches, of course I feel for him,” he added.
