Chelsea are going through their worst season they have ever had under the ownership of Roman Abramovic. The fans are going absolutely crazy while the players are in a quagmire. The administration is a mess and the owner is certainly disappointed. In this brewing storm came in Guus Hiddink who has been very vocal about Chelsea recognising their struggles and rectifying their errors.
Following his manager’s footsteps is the young Kurt Zouma. He believes it is all down to the players and the spectacular loss of form and confidence following the previous season.
“It’s been pretty tough for us since the start of the season, we can’t lie to ourselves. We’re not where we should be. I think it’s a mental thing. I can’t give reasons but I think it’s because mentally we’re not well.”
“There are always seasons like that but we’ll lift our heads up and it will be OK.”
“It’s difficult but we believe in ourselves and we have no choice but to lift our heads up. We haven’t lost in 2016, even if we’re advancing slowly. We’ll try and speed up a bit.”
“I think we are responsible because we’re the ones on the pitch and we didn’t play well.”
“We didn’t do what we should have, didn’t play the right way and I don’t think that’s the fault of the coach.”
In a shocking revelation, the Frenchman has stated that the team is currently no better than they were under Mourinho. This might be a warning bell for the club hierarchy as they are currently embroiled in a relegation battle with their disappointing start to the season.
“Everyone has their share of responsibility but I think we were just as good with Jose Mourinho as with Guus Hiddink. It’s the same thing.”
“We haven’t lost this year, but we’re drawing, it’s a bit complicated. We’re picking up one point in three. We’re better than we were at the start of the season when we were losing games. I hope we go on a run now and win a lot of games.”
“It’s difficult at home just like it is away. For me the Premier League is the best in the world.
