Rubenilson played with Chadli at Twente.
"I was sitting with my wife in Craiova, Romania when Chadli's brother called me and asked if I could go visit. Nacer was struggling.
"I immediately said that I would go, but we would not be talking about football. Upon his departure, Andre Villas-Boas had apparently declared that he knew nothing about Chadli. That in itself is a slap in the face. And if you include Tim Sherwood, the new coach, said he did not even deserve to play, it makes sense that you hit a dip."
Rubenilson continued: "So it was only after my time in London, the end of February, it started to go better for him a bit. Nacer's biggest mistake is that he continues to be generous on the pitch. Consequently, he's not using his talent to the fullest.
"Sometimes you see him, for example, very deep back in defence to lend a hand."
"He bossed that game, he was so good that Jose Mourinho - who was scouting Ajax as coach of Real Madrid - after the game was whispering to him: 'We're monitoring your performance, do not forget that'."
