Legendary Arsenal player Thierry Henry suggested that Chelsea players are disillusioned by Mourinho.Former striker has particularly pointed out, that Eden Hazard and Nemanja Matic have special reasons to be dissatisfied.
Henry told Sky Sports :
“I see a team that is not buying into what Mourinho wants any more. Hazard and Nemanja Matic for example. Matic was substituted against Southampton then went to play for Serbia and got sent-off. He then got sent-off again at West Ham. Whether that was right or wrong, you can tell they are all on edge,”
“The body language of Hazard suggests that he doesn’t want to play in the same way. Maybe Mourinho has to deal with his main players not accepting the way he likes to play.”
“It’s very demanding for Hazard to track back, tuck in and play on the counter. Mourinho has shown he’s been very successful winning games that way but when you win the league and come back the year after you need to do more.”
However former Arsenal player is convinced that whatever is happening at Chelsea now and no matter what kind of difficulties the team is facing, Jose Mourinho should not be sacked as he has proven time and time again that he is a winner and among the best managers in the world.
“You have to give him the respect about what he’s achieved in the game. People forget that he won the treble with Inter Milan. Wherever he’s been, he’s won things. This is one of the first times he’s had to deal with a crisis at a club. I think he’s smart enough to deal with it. He has the team and the experience to recover. Let’s not forget what he’s achieved at Porto, at Inter Milan, at Real Madrid. It’s amazing,”
