As per reports, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is fighting to keep control of his players in the Blues’ dressing room, as several of his players have now become increasingly discontent at his handling of the club. Standard Sport added that a major part of the first-team squad now were quite unsettled by the Portuguese manager’s public criticism of players within the team and among his backroom staff as well.
Further, one senior player has also said to have used a derogatory one-word nickname for Mourinho, which was also used in secret by some of his most disaffected team-mates. The former Real Madrid boss made a post-match rant on Sky television following his side’s defeat to Southampton on October 3 and things just went from bad to worse. Draw to Dynamo Kiev last night made the situation tough for him.
Further, a number of players including Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas and Kurt Zouma spoke out during the time of the international break as well. Further, Nemanja Matic, Cesar Azpilicueta and Oscar are some of the stars to have been targetted in front of the rest, while others left out of the team are just ignored. Mourinho surely needs to get things right and soon.
