Former Chelsea midfielder, Ramires has revealed that he left the Premier League club because of a clash with interim manager Guus Hiddink

Big changes 

The Brazilian had established himself as one of the main staples in the Chelsea midfield since his arrival from Benfica back in 2010. 

The-29-year-old had signed a new four-year-deal back in October, while still under the watch of former manager Jose Mourinho. However with Mourinho's dismissal and the arrival of the Dutchman it proved to be the end, with Ramires just starting the one match under Hiddink - the defeat of Scunthorpe in the FA Cup. 

Continental star 

The Brazilian decided that it was enough for him to move away from Stamford Bridge as he secured a £25million move to the Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning in the January transfer window. 

After settling in Asia the Brazilian has revealed that Hiddink was one of the main reasons for his move to the emerging league. 

He told The Sun that one of the "big reasons" for his departure from the English capital was the arrival of "the new coach [Hiddink]".

Rash judgement 

Ramires has now been given the chance to play in the Far East scoring three minutes into his league debut in the 3-0 win over Shandong Luneng however he feels that he was not allowed to show his quality to Hiddink. 

He said that under Mourinho he had a "chance of playing" but as soon as Hiddink came in he took him straight out "for no reason" and that he "didn't like" him as a player and decided "very rashly" to not give him a chance. 

He continued saying that the arrival of Hiddink "really complicated" things and he just doesn't "know why" but finished saying "I guess that's football". 

Chelsea will travel to face Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, April 9 with kick-off at 3pm BST.
