Ramires reveals the secret
Ramires reveals the secret

Ramires has claimed Guus Hiddink was the main reason behind his Stamford Bridge departure in January.

The Brazilian joined Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning after receiving less game time under Chelsea’s interim manager.

Ramires then decided it was the right time to leave Chelsea after joining them from Benfica in 2010.

He told in an interview with The Sun: “One of the big reasons I left Chelsea was the arrival of the new coach.

“It wasn’t just because I had a good relationship with Jose.

“But when he was in charge, I knew there was a chance of playing and that the fight for a place in the team was always open.

“Yet when Hiddink arrived, he took me out of the side for no reason.

“I couldn’t understand why because I had played well and fought hard for a team that was having difficulties.

“He didn’t like me as a player or my way and decided very rashly that he wasn’t going to give me an opportunity to fight for a place in his team.

“Even when I played the full 90 minutes against Scunthorpe, the next match in the Premier League I was not involved.

“I just sat on the bench the entire game and after that, I wasn’t even a sub.”

Ramires was not at all happy with playing on the fringes of the first-team and felt a move was the perfect choice for him.

Ramires played just one match under Hiddink in the FA Cup against Scunthorpe, but his opportunities soon dried up, making his decision to accept a move to China easy.

He added: “I was a long time out of matches there and I wanted to join in and help a team that was not in a great moment.

“And it was not easy to watch from the bench and see the team not performing well.

“Hiddink’s arrival really complicated things for me and I just don’t know why… but I guess that’s football.”

Chelsea return to action against Swansea in the Premier League this Saturday.
