Cesc Fabregas denies he’s leading the player revolt at Chelsea

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has hit out at suggestions that he is the player rousing the club’s dressing room to mutiny against manager Jose Mourinho, the Daily Express reports.

Earlier this week The Secret Footballer had claimed that a number of Blues players had turned against Mourinho for his treatment of club doctor Eva Carniero at the beginning of the season.

But the Spanish international has sought to clear up any allegations of discontent behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge.

“Since that moment [Eva Carneiro], Mourinho’s ego has been hurt and has demanded that he reinstate the presence that he had before,” The Secret Footballer claimed.

“His ego is why he didn’t apologise, when he most certainly should have.

“What has happened since has been the total and utter abandonment of Mourinho and his philosophy by the players.

“Mourinho is bang to rights and the players know it, so they are now trying to make their point on the pitch.

“I have it on the best authority possible that the players have told the manager that they hate the way they play.

“They hate the way they have to sit back against inferior opposition, they hate the way they aren’t allowed to express themselves.

“I’m told that Cesc Fabregas is the leader of that mini-revolt. And as a player, you do things like this when you know you are in the right.

“You try your luck. Why not? It’s your way of saying to the manager ‘you can either listen to us, and give the go ahead to change and give us what we want, or we’ll keep serving you up the same old s**t and embarrass you.'”
