Former Chelsea midfielder Ramires has revealed how Jose Mourinho lost the dressing room, destroyed Eden Hazard's confidence and ultimately left Chelsea in 2015.

Mourinho won the league in 2014 and followed it up with a terrible season which saw Chelsea fighting for Premier League survival.

Ramires told fourfourtwo magazine that Mourinho's open criticisms of players led to his downfall.

“That had a big impact because he started to lose control of the squad,” the Brazilian said.

"It’s one thing to say something internally, but it’s totally different to criticise someone publicly.

“Hazard was our main player, and what he did affected Eden’s game.

“Hazard used to collect the ball and attack the opposition. He started to pass the ball much more, and we missed our main attacking threat.

“The atmosphere became really heavy. There were guys who were already angry because they weren’t playing.

“When something like that happened with Hazard, those who weren’t playing had another ally against the manager.

“It became a snowball that only got bigger. It reached a stage where nothing would improve.”
