chelsea striker kezman admits if it werent for mourinho he would have prob quit chelsea

"On more than one occasion I just wanted to drive to the airport and jump on the first plane home," said Kezman.

"My wife and I were struggling desperately with the situation. I even remember saying to myself, 'If this doesn't change by January, I will have to find myself a new club'.

"I had to tell him (Mourinho) how I was feeling. It is not in my nature to keep quiet. I knew if I was burdened by unhappiness it would eventually go terribly wrong for me on the pitch.

"I wasn't frightened to approach Mourinho, we talk a lot anyway, so I didn't find it too difficult to have showdown talks with him.

"I'm pleased to say he immediately calmed me down and said, 'Don't worry, it will work out. I have immense confidence in your ability as a striker'."

Thats surprising he seemed to be getting on ok at the club. See thats what i mean when i keep saying we don't know what goes on behind the scenes at clubs...

Well i think he is doing ok at Chelsea and the more he plays the better he looks..

yer, he wasnt featuring much and at the start, all the news was on Mutu really. recently he has came on to a game.

i think mourinho did well getting him confident again, and supposively he said, i want Kezman to take the penalty the other day, and if he missed that, it would have really messed his confidence up. but i think as there was faith he put it in the net
