Cesc Fabregas has again denied leading a Chelsea players’ revolt against the club’s under-pressure manager Jose Mourinho.
Fabregas took to Twitter earlier this month to state he has “an excellent relationship” with Mourinho following reports he had led a mini-revolt of players who demanded the Blues boss change the team’s style of play.
Fabregas has now reiterated his support for Mourinho, telling Spain’s Radio COPE: “Mourinho trusts us and we trust him.
“Obviously it is a lie [that Fabregas led a mutiny against Mourinho]. I backed him in a very difficult time.
“My relationship with Mourinho is good, as always, but when things aren’t going well people are always looking for something.”
Fabregas has also become the latest Chelsea player to state the team’s performances have not been as bad as results would suggest.
“Those of us who have been most criticised are Hazard, Diego Costa and myself, but you get used to it,” Fabregas added.
“We’re not doing well in the league at the moment. Last year we lost four games all season and this season we have lost seven already. But Mourinho is a winner, when he loses he goes home sad as I do.
“The results at Chelsea aren’t what we would want and don’t reflect the level of our play. I feel good in myself, but when the results aren’t coming everything is negative and everything looks bad.”
