Mourinho: Chelsea's Champions League failure down to Abramovich

Jose Mourinho has blamed Roman Abramovich for Chelsea's failure to win the Champions League.

Chelsea, who face Valencia tomorrow, went out to Liverpool on penalties in the semi-finals but Mourinho says Abramovich failed to sign the players needed during the transfer window.

Mourinho, who left Chelsea 12 days ago, said: "When we needed help to get a bit further, that help was denied us around December- January time."
