Cesc Fabregas appeared on SkySports "Monday Night Football" and has revealed the reasons that things did not work out for Jose Mourinho. I want to know how you feel about his comments?
Plenty of people have had their say on what happened which we have all read with interest. However, Chelsea demise this season I am sure will remain one of those questions that no one would ever be able to answer with absolute certainty.
We have heard from Pundits, Premier League Managers, Frank Lampard to Jose Mourinho himself and we are none the wiser in claiming the ONE reason as to why everything fell apart.
So to Cesc Fabregas and his take on what happened under Jose Mourinho. When asked for his opinion he said:

It's important to recall that during the period leading up to the Jose leaving and in the time that followed, there was plenty of speculation stating that Fabregas along with some others in the dressing room had led a revolt against the Special One which I personally thought was rubbish and posted up a rant to state exactly that after witnessing what I did at Stamford Bridge and the personal abuse he received.
Fabregas then issued a statement through his social media account to clarify that these reports were untrue and in response, Pat Nevin the ex-Chelsea Legend and now Pundit had to clarify his position.
So to the Video above and the fact that he said that Jose had "trusted his players too much" and gave them "too much holiday" which is scandalous really isn't it. You would think that the players would feel revitalised and would have come back ready to go knowing that it would be so much harder this year to retain the title and to double their efforts. However, they started the season looking out of shape and with hardly any motivation!
Fabregas says Jose "had to go" and that the players feel bad but what if the shoe was on the other foot with these primma donnas in the dressing room that had under performed for so long? Why is it the Manager pays the price? What would have happened if these people were pulled in one-by-one and told in no uncertain terms that they would face the sack for breach of contract? I wonder if we would have had a different reaction?
It will remain one of those unsolved mysteries in Football. We have moved on, Jose Mourinho will move on this summer to Manchester and we look forward to Antonio Conte coming in. Let's hope we never have another season like it!
