Chelsea midfielder, Cesc Fabregas has denied rumours making rounds that he is leading a revolt against the club’s coach, Jose Mourinho following the Portuguese’s treatment of the former team Doctor, Eva Carneiro. Below is a report fromThe Secret Footballer.
“Since that moment [Eva Carneiro], Mourinho’s ego has been hurt and has demanded that he reinstate the presence that he had before. His ego is why he didn’t apologise, when he most certainly should have. What has happened since has been the total and utter abandonment of Mourinho and his philosophy by the players.Mourinho is bang to rights and the players know it, so they are now trying to make their point on the pitch.I have it on the best authority possible that the players have told the manager that they hate the way they play.
They hate the way they have to sit back against inferior opposition, they hate the way they aren’t allowed to express themselves.”I’m told that Cesc Fabregas is the leader of that mini-revolt. And as a player, you do things like this when you know you are in the right You try your luck. Why not? It’s your way of saying to the manager ‘you can either listen to us, and give the go ahead to change and give us what we want, or we’ll keep serving you up the same old s**t and embarrass you.’
The Spanish footballer however took to his official twitter account to set the records straight.
“I would like to clarify that contrary to a few reports form some online websites, I am extremely happy at Chelsea and have an excellent relationship with the manager. There maybe certain individuals from the outside trying to destabilise this club but I strongly believe that we will bounce back and come good again.” The 28 year-old wrote
