"Because my team in this moment .. The first negative thing that happens, the team collapses, the team mentally and psychologically is unbelievably down.
"It's like good players are bad players. The first half .. We did not show our quality but we were in control, and one mistake a lack of concentration, one goal, you are having a tough time where in normal circumstances you come to the second half you do your normal game.
"I told the players at halftime, no worries, we are not losing, do your normal game it's 1-1, the team comes with a good spirit and we have a penalty .. A giant penalty .. And he was afraid to give it, like everyone else is afraid to give.
"And after that the team lost. You know their second goal is an individual mistake, their third goal is an individual mistake.
"The team tries but they collapse. They are in such a low moment, that they collapse.
"I can also know what you are thinking and saying in the studio. What people are saying is going to happen is not going to happen.
"I want to make it clear -- one I do not run away.
"Two -- if the club wants to sack me they have to sack me because I am not running away from my responsibilities from my team or from my conviction.
"To be champion is obviously very very difficult because the distance is considerable but I am more than convinced that we will finish in the top four and when the season is so bad and you finish in the top four it's okay.
"Third .. Even more important than the first and the second points. I think this is a crucial moment in the history of this club. Why? Because if the club sacks me they sack the best manager this club has had and secondly the message is again the message of bad results the manager is guilty.
"And this is the message not just these players but the ones before, got during a decade I think this a moment for everyone to assume their responsibilities.
"I think the players should and other people in the club who should assume their responsibilities, and to stick together and this is what I want.
"The players will play until the end of this season.
"You know I consider myself with a big self-esteem and a big ego. I consider myself the best, I am living the worst period of my career, the worst results of my career.
"Doing that as a professional hurts me a lot, doing it at Chelsea hurts me twice, because I like this club very much and it was because of that I came back.
"So I want to carry on, no doubt, ... and when you go down to so many individual mistakes and fear to play, and are playing really really bad individually, I cannot come here and say you and you and you and you -- it's not my job.
"But I think it's clear we are being punished by too many individual mistakes and as I was saying sadness brings sadness. Bad results attract bad results.
"The first mistake is just the first because after that comes another. This team needs to finish the first half winning 2-0 or 3-0 with the fears disappearing so they play free in the second half with a free reign, and a free spirit this is what this team needs and it is not happening.
"And I repeat and make it clear again, I don't want to be offensive or non-polite, or to question the dignity of the people, but I repeat the referees are afraid of giving decisions and when you are top and you want to see people come down - when people are down give us a break and be honest with us because the team deserves that and the penalty is clear and 2-1 is a completely different story.
"Ok, thank you."
