Knowing fully when that he flopped at Manchester United, when Jose Mourinho signed Radamel Falcao, the fans of Chelsea were disappointed as they thought it was not the calibre and class of player that could slug it out for a place with Diego Costa.
Nonetheless, Falcao was not the only “terrible” signing of Mourinho. A certain Papy Djilobodji signed for Chelsea on the transfer deadline day and he has been the biggest flop signing of last summer. He has only played once for Chelsea where he got less than 15 minutes of action.
Chelsea former manager Jose Mourinho had claimed he did not know the playing before he was signed and further said Djilobodji wasn’t the player he wanted. However, in his typical loquacious manner, he claimed he trusted the scouts of Chelsea and judgement over transfer target. Even at that, Djilobodji was frequently used only in training.
According to Sportwitness, French newspaper L’Equipe claims:
“They’ve learned from Chelsea’s inner circles that Mourinho took out revenge against Djilobodji. It’s claimed that, despite the former Chelsea manager being slightly positive about the transfer in public, he ostracised the player as a way of hitting back against club officials who had bought him. “
However, the Senegalese has been linked with a move to Marseille, Besiktas and Stuttgart and we think he will be better off making a move away. Since the appointment of Hiddink, the player has not featured for the Blues and he should, in his best interest make a move.
