Chelsea’s former striker Demba Ba has launched a scathing attack to his former boss, suggesting the Portuguese is more concerned about reputation than statistics.
Ba left the club this summer to join Turkish side Besiktas, but angrily feels Mourinho never gave him a chance to prove himself, and kept him second-fiddle to the likes of Fernando Torres.
Speaking to Daily Mail, ‘’Sometimes when you are at a club with a lot of big stars, the name counts for more than the statistics. Unfortunately, it was like that in my case.
‘’But I am happy I moved from Newcastle to Chelsea and achieved what I did. I have lots of friends there.
‘’Eden Hazard is one of my best friends. I am close to Branislav Ivanovic too. All my wishes are for them to win the league’’
The Senegalese was highly influential for the blues during his short stint, coming off the bench to score crucial goals, a highlight of them was at Anfield last season where he evaded past Steven Gerrad to fire the visitors ahead.
