After Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City over the weekend, the Blues are currently languishing in 10 place and firmly out of the top four race and the Premier League title, a clear indication that they are out of next seasons Champions League.
Chelsea have been bombarded with a disastrous campaign and seem to have given up to make any clear progress, and the defeat in the hand of arch-rivals City served as clear indication that nothing is right at the Stamford Bridge.
And in their defense, interim boss Guus Hiddink has confirmed that the players are indeed frustrated and are saving their energy for this summer’s European Championships with nothing to play for in the league. This news truly shocked many fans as they have to pay for the tickets and expect the club to deliver nothing but the best for them.
When asked whether some of his players are thinking ahead to this summer’s European Championships in France, the Dutchman said: “Partly true, but I cannot blame the players for having a lack of attitude.
“Some players might think that, but I cannot look into their minds, in their brains. They might be thinking of the Euros. When there is nothing at stake then with some people there is a little bit of a lack of the ultimate work.”
