It has been claimed by Nemanja Matic that the players hide from manager Jose Mourinho in training after a defeat.
In a recent interview with Sky Sports, the Serbian – who has controversially chosen not to wear a poppy – praised Mourinho for being good for the Premier League but also stated that he is very different away from the pitch.

Matic told Sky Sports: “He’s a great person. He’s a different man outside the job and off the pitch.
“He does have a lot of pressure though because everyone expects him only to win. When we don’t win everyone is waiting to see his reaction. He likes to win and when we don’t win we are hiding from him at the training ground.
“He’s happy when he’s winning but when we lose, like every manager, he wants us to do better. He tries to find a way to be winning as soon as possible.
“One thing is for sure that since he’s been in the Premier League he’s changed a lot in the league. The Premier League has become more interesting with him.”
