Some of the key stars at Stamford Bridge do not like the rotation policy.
There are downsides to having a squad fall of stars as Jose Mourinho is finding, with the Chelsea players becoming annoyed with the manager’s rotation policy, according to the Mirror.
Since returning to take charge at Stamford Bridge this summer following a six year absence, the 50-year-old is still yet to find the ideal starting XI at the club.
With a plethora of options in all areas Mourinho has been experimenting with different line-ups so far this term and this tinkering is beginning to grate on some players.
Whilst old favourites of the Portuguese ace such as Frank Lampard and John Terry have enjoyed more playing time than has been the case over the past few years, stand-out performers from last campaign such as David Luiz and Juan Mata have become sidelined.
Despite having received many plaudits during 2012/13, Mourinho us unsure of the duo’s capabilities and appearances have been sporadic for the pair.
It is not only Luiz and Mata that are becoming disgruntled, with Cesar Azpilicueta, Demba Ba and Kevin De Bruyne also having experienced having to watch from the bench on too many occasions.
This policy employed by the head coach has seen morale in some parts of the Blues squad drop and there is an uneasy atmosphere in west London.
The difficulty Mourinho faces is keeping so may stars happy – which is an impossible task – and it may be that some key players for the club in recent times are seen departing in the near future.
