Nathan Ake has claimed that Jose Mourinho broke him at Chelsea. The youngster is one of the many Chelsea stars who have been turned down by the first team managers and had to prove his worth elsewhere and is a prime testimony to what exactly is wrong at Chelsea.
In an interview with the Telegraph, he revealed, “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?'”
“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.”
Ake has been linked with a sensational return to Chelsea for the last few transfer windows now. The young defender has certainly proved his worth in the Premier League and has a bright future ahead of him with or without Chelsea.
