Cesc Fabregas has done his bit to lighten Mourinho’s mood by telling him himself and the rest of the players wil definately miss him.
“Thank you for all you have done for me,” Fabregas wrote on Twitter, alongside a picture of the pair celebrating Chelsea’s league title success last May.
“I owe you a lot and we will all miss you. Good luck in the future.”
Fabregas is one of many players whose performance level has dropped this season as Chelsea have lost nine of their 16 league games, leaving them a point above the relegation zone.
Chelsea’s players publicly backed Mourinho throughout the team’s struggles, but former Liverpool manager Graeme Souness believes that some of them had effectively downed tools.
“I think he’s lost his dressing room and some of the major players in the dressing room have given up on him,” Souness told Sky Sports News.
“If you fall out with two or three of the main men in the dressing room, that would quickly become all of the dressing room.
“If you look at the quality of players Chelsea have right now, where they are in the league is ridiculous. They should not be down there.”
