Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has come out and explained the exact things which Guus Hiddink has changed at Stamford Bridge since replacing Jose Mourinho.
According to Courtois, players knew, they were to be blamed for Mourinho’s exile but needed a different direction to perform under Hiddink.
The Belgian goalkeeper goes on to add to how Hiddink’s different training methods are helping Chelsea’s misfiring stars come back to form.
The obvious signs are there since under Hiddink, Blues have not lost a game and won their last game 3-0 against Crystal Palace, who beat them 2-1 earlier in the season.
Speaking on the same, Courtois said: “The manager has said some different things that he wants us to do. The training is different.
“Sometimes it’s a bit more tactical or a bit less. There are different type of little games we play – or sometimes more shooting on goal to give confidence to the strikers.”
“Of course with a new manager some things change. Maybe for some players the mentality changed. It’s difficult to explain. It’s something psychological. Little changes. Maybe we needed a change to pick up our level again, I don’t know.”
