Heading into the two-week break from the Premier League, Jose Mourinho's future was up in the air and he has received public criticism from an ex-England Manager. In a couple of short days all that was about to change.

Fabio Capello.

As the man himself stated in his now famous post match interview after the defeat to Southampton, when you are down people will kick you and keep knocking you down and Fabio Capello decided to wade in his with his opinion.

Capello said:

"Mourinho is a great coach but burns out his players after a year and a half, at most two years. I had already heard it when he was at Real Madrid and now we have confirmation in London.

The cycles of Mourinho last more or less this time. His men are mentally no longer able to give what he wants.’

Now with comments being made like that, you would expect the Special One to hit back on the defensive and he delivered just as expected.

Jose responded by saying:

“I read what Capello said: I think a coach with his story had better talk about football without comment on the work of his colleagues.

I could have commented on his job as coach for England or the Russian one, and I never did. Because I prefer to respect the negative moments of my colleagues."

Excellent and on point from Jose don't you think!

Backing from Abramovich.

Then, the club decided to publicly express their support for Jose which has calmed alot of the ridiculous stories down that were being printed by the press linking all sorts of people to the role and stating it would take a world record fee for Chelsea to sack him.

On receiving that support, Jose said:

“That makes me proud, It shows the confidence of Abramovich in the manager who has won three Premier League titles with this club. I thank him and I keep working.

What’s going on? I do not know. The results with Chelsea at the moment have been really bad. I cannot hide that reality, and I don’t want to. And I struggle to find an explanation. But I assure you: I’m working like never before and we will come out of this. And there is also the Champions League that we will not neglect, for certain.”

Backing from Sir Alex Ferguson.

Sir Alex Ferguson then gave his opinion on Jose and on that seven minute interview after Southampton. A friend of Jose, Sir Alex said:

"At times you maybe don't think you're getting complete support from everyone, but it happens. It's not always correct, and I don't think it's correct what Jose's thinking at the moment - I think he's got the support. "

Backing from his players.

Ramires and Gary Cahill spoke publicly about the manager this week insisting that he has not lost the dressing room at Stamford Bridge contrary to some newspaper reports.

Ramires said:

"We’ve not lost a bit of trust in Jose. Everyone trusts him. We think he is the best manager for us,"

Gary Cahill said:

"He [Mourinho] wasn't happy with the way I was playing, along with a few others, and he has every right to let us know that.

Through tough times, we all need to stick together and turn it round together."

Jose the Chelsea fan.

Finally, Jose explains why being Chelsea manager is more than just about work. He said:

"Being one of the fans makes me live my job in a different way.

It’s a positive — it means I am more than just a manager.

This is exactly how I feel it. Not just the Chelsea manager but one of them.

They knew that, they knew that I was one of them. Back to stay, back to give my talent, my work but also my passion.”

What a week for the manager!
