Fabregas denies there was mutiny against Mourinho at Chelsea

Picture: In Mou We Trust

Fabregas has revealed that Mourinho’s ‘rigid style’ in the dressing room was not the reason he left the club in 2015, Mirror reports

The Portuguese manager was appointed by Roman Abramovich in 2004 and spent three hugely successful years there, but his second spell with the club six years later was blighted by a rumoured internal strife despite him winning a double in 2015. He left the club later that year on 'mutual consent.'

Asked whether Mourinho actually lost the players' trust at some point, Fabregas answered: “I don’t think so, it’s always been said something like that about Jose, but I don’t agree at all. I have been inside, I have been part of it, he loves winning, he loves playing well.

“He will never tell you ‘you have to defend, you have to park the bus and then play counter-attacking. He never trained us this way, he always trained with possession of the ball, having the ball, attacking, playing fluid football.

“Of course sometimes you are winning and you are playing a difficult game, and he plays his cards. He knows how to deal in every situation and that’s why he is one of the best managers in the world.”
