Pedro Leon has revealed that he felt humiliated by Jose Mourinho at the start of the year, as the Real Madrid manager refused to let him move to Chelsea.

Leon struggled for game time under Mourinho, and a move away from the club looked all but certain when the transfer window rolled around last January.

And while Chelsea made their intentions to purchase the winger clear, Mourinho insisted that Leon should stay in Madrid and ply his footballing trade there.


Leon has now made just six appearances for the side, and is currently back at Getafe on loan. And he admits that Mourinho’s harsh comments about him were particularly humiliating, with the manager leaving him out of the Champions League squad and blocking the move to Chelsea.

“I felt humiliated,” Leon said.

“I do not know. I did everything I could, I’ve been a professional, I have worked. From the first day I trained as a professional with the same enthusiasm as when I arrived.”

Chelsea were reportedly very close to taking on Leon, with Carlo Ancelotti taking a personal liking to the 24-year-old, but Mourinho was insistent that he stay a Real Madrid player.
