A former Chelsea player has revealed he was left mentally 'broken' under Jose Mouirnho during his time at Stamford Bridge.
Dutch defender Nathan Ake broke into the first team during Rafael Benitez's short stint with the club in 2013.
Mourinho returned for his second stint the following the season, but Ake reveals he was dropped to the reserves before the season started.
"I went to the first team at Chelsea and played under Rafa Benitez and I always thought, 'why is everyone saying setbacks are coming because everything is going up, up, up?" Ake told the Telegraph.
"The season after Benitez left I thought, 'this is going to be my season'.
"Then Jose Mourinho came and, without training, I got dropped into the second team.That was one of the toughest things for me, mentally. I was quite broken.
"Everything was going great, I played a few games, I was young player of the year and then I was in the reserves again."
