Chelsea star Eden Hazard revealed that he has sent an apology text to his former coach Jose Mourinho who was sacked by the Chelsea management recently.
Jose Mourinho was sacked after Chelsea lost their fantastic form of last season and were in the ‘relegation battle’. Club owner Roman Abramovich thought it’s better to sack the Portuguese than his under performing players and Mourinho was given the axe. The football world reacted in kind to criticise the Russian billionaire for his impatience with his manager, but the Russian did not even take them and brought Guss Hiddink as the interim successor.
Under Guus Hiddink Chelsea started to play some good games and the results are improving. It is reported that Eden Hazard deliberately played poor to get Mourinho sacked and some of the other players were involved in the back-play. Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Oscar are the other players heavily criticised by the Chelsea fans.
Now, Eden Hazard revealed that he sent an apology message to Jose Mourinho to which the Portuguese responded by sending his former player a ‘Good Luck’ wish. But the player did not deny the reports in the media that he involved in the back-play to get Jose Mourinho sacked.
On his interview with the Guardian, the Belgian told:
“I sent him the message to say I was sorry he had gone and, well, just that I was sorry. We’d enjoyed all that success together last season, but this time round we hadn’t.”“I felt a little bit guilty because I’d been player of the year. I’d been one of the most decisive players, and this year I’d performed less well.”“I hadn’t been at the same level. So I sent that text to Jose and he came back to me, wishing me all the best for the future. For a team of champions to go through what we have this year even I can’t explain.
