Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says some of his players are "really sad" after the 3-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool.
The Portuguese - who followed New Zealand's victory over Australia in the Rugby World Cup - intends to "disconnect" from football before preparing the mid-week Champions League game against Dynamo Kiev.
"I have some players really sad in the dressing room and I am full of respect for them. We see it match after match," Mourinho explained.
"As professionals they are not getting the respect they deserve. I don't think we, myself and them, are not going to have a great Saturday dinner, even families for sure.
"They have the same feelings that we have and I'm really sorry with that lack of respect for professionals.
"[Now] I go home, I go find a sad family.
"I will try to watch some of the rugby [World Cup final] and disconnect a little bit from this.
"Then I will start preparing the training session for tomorrow morning and the game for Wednesday."
