Courtois: Chelsea players lost confidence in Mourinho

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says the players lost confidence in manager Jose Mourinho last season.

The Manchester United boss was sacked by Chelsea before Christmas.

Courtois told Marca: "[Mourinho] works very well on tactics and he is a winner.

"He is usually very close to his players but when the results were not going well last season we could sense that that was a certain distance appearing between us and him."
