Many believe Pedro's comments about Mourinho when he was sacked as Chelsea boss back in 2015 could be the reason for his departure.

Six years ago, he told the Telegraph after the Portuguese manager was sacked as Blues boss via Mirror:

"It was about everything, everything just wasn’t right. We were very low in the league, the spirits were very low, the trust was very low, and everything was going wrong.
"It made it very difficult to be fit, to be in a good position. It was just the whole thing – it wasn’t right."
