I will never play to save Mourinho, says unnamed player
The Blues are in the amidst of their worst start to the season under Mourinho after winning the Premier League title just five months ago.
Liverpool beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge at the weekend, which has reignited claims of dressing-room unrest at Stamford Bridge and BBC journalist, Garry Richardson, has added further fuel to the fire.
He said on BBC 5 Live’s Sportsweek programme yesterday: “My information comes from a Chelsea first-team player.
The information was actually passed to me by a football contact. I was told that Jose Mourinho’s relationship with many of his players is at rock-bottom.
“I was told they were fed up with the way he has been dealing with some of them. They are fed up with his outbursts. I was told that his relationship particularly with Eden Hazard was under immense strain.
“Here is a staggering quote. One player said recently, ‘I’d rather lose than win for him’.
“Now that quote may well have been said in the heat of the moment but it perhaps gives an insight into the mood of some of the players.”
