Villa's Petrov: Chelsea struggling with Mourinho exit

Aston Villa midfielder Stiliyan Petrov believes Chelsea haven't recovered from the departure of Jose Mourinho.

Aston Villa midfielder Stiliyan Petrov believes Chelsea haven't recovered from the departure of Jose Mourinho.

"When Mourinho was there they had a special team," said the Villa midfielder, recalling the back-to-back Premier League titles Chelsea won under the Portuguese in 2005 and 2006 and the winning mentality he instilled in his players.

"I think they had more belief in themselves. I don't think Chelsea are the team that they used to be under Mourinho. A lot of changes have happened there."
