Sheva told The Sun: “Yes, it’s true I’ve complained about Mourinho – but there are a lot of things which drove me to that. He never spoke to me or played me in the position where my strengths lie.
“It’s also no secret I was more on Mr Abramovich’s wishlist than the manager’s. In transfer talks, Mourinho seemed positive and happy at first.
“A few months ago, I suddenly became his dartboard because he was having a spat with the president at the time.
“One on one with me, he cleared the matter up and said his opinion had been twisted. But inside it still bothers me and I don’t forget things.”
