General[Update] Shall I Take This As a Negative For Me? Pin

Hello there. Recently I had an interview with CEO of this company. In the final phase of this interview, he asked about some of the people who happen to be my current managers in current company. Although switching companies for a number of reasons (including but not limited to money) is not a crime, but should I be worried (are my chances of getting hired slim) ?

=========== EDIT ================

Thanks a lot for your feedback guys.
1- Some of you guys are right. He knew those people and just wanted (or intended) to check what/how they are doing.
2- I, definitely, did not speak ill of them.

My worry was, is there any chance he would contact my current employer?

But after posting this question, when I analyzed his tone and the way he was talking, I came to the conclusion that he was only asking about his past work-mates. That's all.
