People enjoy seeing me suffer

Everton recorded a 3-1 victory at Goodison Park thanks to a Steven Naismith hat-trick and left the Portuguese manager’s side sitting 16th in the table with 4 points from 5 games.mourino

Mourinho told BBC Sport: “I know that lots of people are happy that finally after so many years they find me in a situation like this so fair play, enjoy – but I will enjoy my day [on Sunday] again working hard as always and thinking we can win on Wednesday.

“It is the first time in my career that I am getting these bad results but I am coping with the situation because I am on the players’ side, I am not against them.  I don’t feel I have any reason to be here speaking against them or against their desire or their lack of frustration at the situation so I keep believing in them.

“It is better not to look to the table, this is the first time I look and see my team in such a position.

“Obviously my career and my experience make me believe in myself and I am happy that on Wednesday we have another game and we don’t have to wait 15 days like we did from the last match [the defeat to Crystal Palace].

“I am happy that in this moment the players don’t have too much time to think about what is happening and a different competition is welcome when we are not behind having less points than the opponents – we are on zero like Maccabi, Porto and Dynamo Kiev.

“It is a good challenge, I cannot be here jumping or laughing because people may think I am not sad or frustrated so I cannot laugh too much, but the reality is I face this situation smiling inside because it is a good challenge.”
