PREMIER LEAGUE! Manager Sarri Blast Chelsea Players, Calls Them Mentally Unstable

Published

on

 

Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has suggested he could bring in a sports psychologist to work with his players, after blaming “mental confusion” for Saturday’s 1-0 defeat against Leicester City.

Jamie Vardy’s second-half strike at Stamford Bridge condemned the Blues to their third Premier League defeat of the season.

It leaves Sarri’s men 11 points adrift of leaders Liverpool and ahead of Arsenal only on goal difference in fourth place.

After the match, the Italian criticised his players’ reaction to Vardy’s goal, in the same way as he did following Chelsea’s shock 2-1 loss to Wolves at Molineux earlier this month.

Asked if he is using a sports psychologist to help get to the bottom of Chelsea’s issues, Sarri replied: “No, Not at the moment, because it’s not easy.

“I had a sports psychologist 15 years ago. In Italy it was really very difficult because the clubs were not ready in that moment, but I think they are not ready also in this moment. [That was] my experience in Italy.

“I don’t know [what it’s like] here. We can talk about this [with the club]. Why not?

“It’s clear we didn’t lose for the way of playing. We were a bit unlucky and then we lost because the reaction after the goal was in the wrong direction, I think.

“We had only to continue [playing the same way]. We were in full control of the match. We were dangerous without conceding anything to the opponents, so we had only to continue.”

“Jose Mourinho Ruined My Real Madrid Career” – Kaka

Published

The Brazilian failed to hold down a regular spot in the Blancos starting XI, with the Portuguese preferring Mesut Ozil to him in the lineup.

Former Brazil star Kaka claims that Jose Mourinho is partly responsible for his disappointing spell at Real Madrid.

The Ballon d’Or winner joined Madrid from AC Milan in 2009, becoming the second most expensive player ever, but saw injury problems blight his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

When he regained fitness, Mourinho had taken over as head coach and often left Kaka out of the starting XI.

Kaka believes a combination of the two factors ruined his chance of becoming a star for Real, with Mourinho preferring Mesut Ozil to him in attacking midfield.

“The problem in Madrid was continuity,” Kaka told SporTV. “First, it was because of the injuries. The first year I had a hip problem. I pushed to reach the World Cup and then I had an adductor injury.

“After the Cup I have a knee operation and I’m out for six months. And when I return I have Mourinho. My problem in Madrid was continuity.

“First for the physical issue and then for the choice of the coach. I spent three years trying to convince Mourinho that he could give me opportunities. But it was his choice, it was beyond my reach.”

Despite the disagreements between the two during their time in Madrid, Kaka says that he has forgiven Mourinho and understands why he left him out of the lineup.

“There is no problem between us.

“I was in Manchester for a sponsorship gig and I stayed at the hotel where Mourinho lived and we talked for two hours.

“At some point we had a misunderstanding because I believed that I had to play and he believed that I did not. But they were respectful disagreements.

“I never rebelled and told him ‘I’m leaving here’, nor did I go before the press to complain. I told him: ‘It’s your choice, but I think you could have other options because I think I should have a chance to play. Now, you must choose.’

“He had no arguments. He told me he was not going to play because the position was for Ozil. I thought I could contribute.

“Mourinho is really what you see in the cameras. He has his explosive moments, but he’s a very smart guy. What people see at press conferences is all prepared and planned and knows exactly what they are going to say. The problem I had with him was because of his choices. I thought he was wrong. But the team worked. We won a ;eague and we reached the Champions League semi-finals.”
