Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes Paris Saint-Germain deserved to go through in last night’s Champions League clash, saying his players couldn’t cope with the pressure of the situation.
According to BBC Sport, Mourinho admitted after the game that his team did not deserve to qualify if they conceded two goals from corners.
Still, the Portugese coach also called for calm after this setback, insisting that a Premier League title win to add to their Capital One Cup success can still be a good season.
“Paris St-Germain deserved it,” he said. “When a team can’t defend two corners and concedes two goals to corners they don’t deserve to win.
“Our performance was not good enough. The opponent was stronger than us, they coped better with the pressure of the game.
“We tried to win but the moment they had 10 men we felt too much pressure.
“We need to react. We have a Premier League to win. I told that to the players.
“It is not a time to cry, and also not a time to laugh. It is time to analyse the situation.
“If we win the Premier League and the Capital One Cup it will still be a fantastic season.”
