Video: Mourinho Makes Promise To Chelsea Fans After Kiev Win

Chelsea showed character tonight to dig out a win over Dynamo Kiev and manager Jose Mourinho was clearly touched by the support he received from the home crowd throughout the night when speaking after the game.

The Portuguese boss has been under immense pressure of late and he was quick to acknowledge the fans who are supporting him in spite of so much external criticism and media attention.

Although this result can only be the beginning of any kind of Chelsea turnaround, it comes at an important time as another loss would have put them in real danger of being knocked out of the tournament at the group phase.

They’re now just three off group leaders Porto who they play in their final group match at the beginning of December.

Watch below as Mourinho thanks – and makes a promise to – the fans.

Chelsea don’t exactly have it easy in their next game with a late kick-off away to their League Cup nemesis Stoke to come on Saturday.

The pressure is eased ever so slightly but going to the Potters is far from an ideal fixture for a side that’s struggling.
