Mourinho slams Chelsea performance: 11 mistakes. I should've picked another team!
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was unhappy with his players after their defeat at Newcastle United. Mourinho, who made nine changes from the midweek Capital One Cup victory over Arsenal, later admitted he had got it wrong.
Asked if he had made the right choices, he said: "No, I made 11 mistakes, 11 mistakes. I should have picked another 11 and not this one. I made 11 mistakes.
"It's the feeling I have. When my team plays so badly, it's the feeling I have.
"I'm exaggerating. Of course we had some guys with, I am not saying outstanding, but with some normal good performances, but the feeling is that I made 11 wrong choices."
