A few months after his departure from the Stamford Bridge, Ramires has explained the reasons behind his transfer to Jiangsu Suning. Ramires says that he fell out of favor at the club, with interim coach Guus Hiddink dropping him for reasons he can’t quite understand.
Ramires joined several other great footballers in the Chinese Super League. Before he left, he had played 12 games for Chelsea this season, scoring two goals and creating one chance. It all started well with Jose Mourinho as the head coach, but Chelsea moved from the frying pan into the fire every other match.
When Jose Mourinho was sacked, his place was taken by the assistant coach then, Guus hiddink, who Ramires thinks he did not like him as a player.
While Chelsea has struggled all season, Ramires has an easy time settling in china. In fact, he has already scored for his new employers in a friendly match against Anzhi Makhachkala.
He received a warm welcome from Jiangsu Suning fans on his arrival, having completed a £25million transfer. The Brazilian had been a Chelsea player for six years, winning several trophies with the club. However, when his first team chances continued to dwindle, his Brazilian teammate Paulinho convinced him to leave.
The departure of Jose Mourinho did not heal Chelsea’s problems. In fact, it seems that Jose was not the problem, because the team has still not found its form, and it is struggling at the 9th position with only 47 points from 34 matches.
They face Tottenham next, whose title hopes suffered a huge blow when they shared the spoils with West Bromwich Albion on Monday night.
