Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho reportedly accused his players of betraying him at half-time during his final game against Leicester City. 

Mourinho's stunning rant, claiming that his work had been betrayed following proceedings at the King Power Stadium, hit the headlines soon after the showdown, but it appears that it wasn't the first time he had directed the accusation towards his players.

In fact, the Mirror claims that Mourinho had twice previously pointed the finger towards his under-performing stars at Stamford Bridge.

As well as the half-time outburst, it appears that the self-proclaimed 'Special One' initially delivered the bombshell during a meeting the day before his side met the Premier League leaders.

Ultimately, Chelsea went on to lose the game and Mourinho was dismissed as the club's manager just days later.

Hiddink in charge 

With Mourinho seeking pastures new, Chelsea fans will be hoping to see new manager Guus Hiddink turn things around in west London. 

After watching the club secure a 3-1 victory over Premier League strugglers Sunderland from the stand on Saturday, the experienced Dutchman will take to the dugout for the Boxing Day encounter with high-flying Watford. 

Hiddink certainly has his work cut out, but there will no doubt be a response from Chelsea's elite players over the coming weeks and months.
