Former Brazil international Lucio is backing Jose Mourinho to fix things at Stamford Bridge.
Lucio was part of Mourinho’s Inter Milan’s 2010 treble winning squad and the defender remains a big fan of the Portuguese tactician.
The blues are currently experiencing their worst start to a premier league title with just three league wins this season.
The Portuguese is said to be under immense pressure at Stamford Bridge but Lucio believes that the Special one is the right man for the Chelsea job and backed the manager to turn things around.
“For me, he is the best manager I have played under in my career,” he said to IBTimes UK.
“In Europe, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid all play at a very high level.
“In England also you have Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool, along with Chelsea that play at a high level.
“And it’s not easy to stay at the top all the time. Knowing him, he is not happy with the situation as well.
“But, 100 per cent he will come out of it and be back at the top very soon. He is capable of it and will do it.
“Whenever the team loses, Mourinho is never smiling in the next training session. He always wants to win every game.
“At Inter, when we lost a match once, all of us avoided him in the next training. I ran past him not even looking at his face.”
Lucio played 48 games for Jose Mourinho at inter in the 2009/2010 season scoring 2 goals.
