Mourinho Slammed By Cruyff

Barcelona and Holland legend, Johan Cruyff has slammed Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho for turning on his players when things don’t go well for his sides.

Ahead of Chelsea’s crucial quarter-final return leg against Paris Saint-Germain, where the Blues have to overcome a 3-1 defeat, Cruyff criticized the outspoken Portuguese for his approach at both Chelsea and Real Madrid.

According to the Dutch legend, Mourinho likes to take the praise after victories, but blames his players when things go wrong.

"First, I think the French have a strong team with good players,” Cruyff told De Telegraaf.

"They have good players too, Chelsea, but according to coach Jose Mourinho that is too bad. In that respect, it is the same song from him.”

Following the 3-1 defeat in Paris, Mourinho had labelled the defensive work of his side as ‘ridiculous’ and Cruyff warns the Portuguese could lose the Chelsea dressing room as he did in Madrid.

"If it goes well, it is down to him, if it doesn't run smoothly, it is up to the players,” he continued.

"I saw at Real Madrid the way he lost the players in front of him and I do not rule out that happening at Chelsea."

Cruyff also criticized Mourinho’s attitude towards his misfiring strikes.

"To ask as if it were the most normal thing in the world for a striker of €70m is an attitude that bothers me,” he added.

"Especially when you see that he has attackers in his squad."

If Chelsea were to drop out of the Champions League and also won’t win the Premier League title, it would be the first time that he would fail to win a trophy with Chelsea.
