Mourinho confesses some Chelsea players unhappy

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admits he has unhappy players in his squad.

But Mourinho believes it makes the players hungry and ready to bring the Blues success.

"I'm very club, club, team, team, club, group [orientated]," the Portuguese said.

"I think everybody has to be ready to sacrifice for the team, to give everything for the team, to think about the team, not to be selfish. This is the way I want a team to be.

"I think it is right when you say that players are unhappy or players are frustrated, that they need to be patient. I don't have a secret to keep players happy.

"But the reality is that, to be professional and work at a high level, you don't need to be happy. All of them are professionals.

"The team is more important than themselves, and the club [is]."
