Former Chelsea midfielder Ramires, now playing in China after a lucrative move to Jiangsu Suning, claims he left Stamford Bridge due to interim manager Guus Hiddink‘s refusal to give him playing time.
Ramires told The Sun: “One of the big reasons I left Chelsea was the arrival of Hiddink.”
“It wasn’t just because I had a good relationship with Jose Mourinho , but when he was in charge, I knew there was a chance of playing and that the fight for a place in the team was always open.”
About Chelsea: “I always had a good relationship inside the club and I still have today. I played and performed in some important matches for Chelsea and can honestly say that I always worked hard for the team.”
“The previous coaches always trusted me to perform in the key games and I loved my time at the club” Ramires added.
