Chelsea and Belgium goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has said that the players should take responsibility for last season’s slump at the club.
He said even if the then Chelsea coach, Jose Mourinho’s departure became necessary, it was not a thing to celebrate.
He told Daily Mail, “He gave me a chance to play at Chelsea, he’s a top manager.
“Sometimes it’s not only the manager, but he’s the first one that people look at.
“You see it everywhere in football, when results are not there then the first guy who has to go is the manager.
“It’s not always the managers; sometimes it’s also the players who we have to blame. I don’t think we as a team last year were on the same level as the year we were champions.
“It is not only about the manager. But obviously the club has to make a decision at one point and they decided to let him go.
“We decided to play and finish the season as well as we could but we were 10th. That’s obviously very bad for Chelsea.”
