Ben Haim lashes out, nobody cares

New, comments

ben-haim.jpgEarlier this week, Chelsea reserve team star Tal Ben Haim was asked about his current role at the club. Predictably, he had some choice words for management.

"Jose Mourinho is the reason I came to Chelsea," Ben Haim said. "And if I knew Avram Grant was going to be the coach I would have signed for another club. It was Jose who brought me here and no one except he and I know the conversation we had when he tried to sign me the first time a year ago last January.

"The fact is while Jose was the coach I played most of the games and people who know me know that I would not have come here to be a reserve. I knew nothing good would come for me with Grant as Chelsea coach."

So, what kind of conversation did you and Mourinho have? Are you telling me he told you you were going to see consistant action? Nonsense. More like, "You will be fourth choice. Big Boss will pay big. I'm fantastic."

Seriously, how many first-team appearances has this guy made for us? Thirteen. Yeah, I'd say his disdain is solidified wouldn't you? Jog on.

Edit: Since his outburst, TBH has been fined two weeks wages. Hoorah.
