Chelsea manager told to win back players

According to a report, Chelsea have told Jose Mourinho to win back the faith of his players

Chelsea management have told Jose Mourinho to win back his dressing room amidst reports that some players have lost faith in the manager.

BBC presenter Garry Richardson claimed that one first-team player’s relationship with his manager was irreparably damaged.

“One player said recently, ‘I’d rather lose than win for him’. It may have been said in the heat of the moment, but perhaps gives an insight into the mood of some of the players,” Richardson said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

“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’re fed up with the way he’s been dealing with some of them.

“They’re fed up with his outbursts. I was told his relationship particularly with Eden Hazard was under immense strain.”

Chelsea have however refused to comment on the report.

According to another report, Chelsea have told Mourinho to win back the faith of his players.

The club is not ready to sack the manager now and will likely give him another month to pout his house in order.
