Chelsea captain Gary Cahill slammed Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri for the way he was treated by the Italian this season.
Cahill claimed it is hard for him to have respect for the Italian after how he has been handled this season.
“It’s been really terrible for me personally,” Cahill told the Sunday Telegraph. “It will just be erased out of my head when I leave Chelsea. My last memory will be last season’s FA Cup final.
“It’s been very difficult. I have played on a regular basis over the previous six seasons and I’ve won everything with Chelsea, so to be watching from the stands is something I didn’t expect.
“I know how the whole club works, I’ve got a big relationship with all the players and staff, and yet none of that has been utilised.
“If you are not playing a player, any player, for two, three, four games, then you don’t have to give a reason for that. But if it gets to eight or nine games, then you have to explain the situation. What’s going on?
“But the manager hasn’t done that. I see some of the situations with players who won the title with Chelsea, not just myself, and it just hasn’t been right.
“It makes it very hard for me to have respect for someone who has not respected what some of us have won with the club.”
Cahill will leave the club at the end of the season and Sarri gave him an opportunity to say goodbye to the fans at Stamford Bridge with a late cameo against Watford.
Sarri hailed Cahill for his professionalism this season following Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Watford at Stamford Bridge, despite the centre back comments earlier today.
Responding to Cahill’s comments, Sarri said: “I don’t know the situation, I’m sorry.
“It’s not important for me. Cahill, during the season, was really very professional. He played only five, six or seven matches, but he was really very important in the training ground, in the dressing room.
“Today was his last match for Chelsea, so it was important for him to be on the pitch, only for a few minutes but I still think it was really very important for the fans and for him.
“Here, Gary won everything. And so I think he had to say goodbye to the stadium, to the fans, to the club.”
