Chelsea FC News: Boss Hits Back at Blues Winger's Comments, Claims that the Latter Lacks Work Rate
By Mark Wayne Eubank | May 2, 2014 11:54 PM EST
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho did not like how winger Eden Hazard commented on his tactics after a 3-1 loss in the Champions League semi-finals that led to the west Londoners exit.
"When the comments come from a player like Eden it's normal because he's not the kind of player to sacrifice himself for the team." - Jose Mourinho
The Belgium international revealed that the Portuguese mentor instructed them to work on counterattacks rather than making the first move on the offensive end.
"When the comments come from a player like Eden it's normal because he's not the kind of player to sacrifice himself for the team," said Mourinho.
"He's not mentally ready to look to his left-back and leave his life for him."
"Normally you get these kind of comments from players like him, from players that can't resolve a problem like we had in the first goal."
"If you see the first goal of Atletico you completely understand where the mistake was and why we conceded that goal."
