Chelsea boss blasts side after woeful result against Roma

Share this on

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has blasted his side after their shocking defeat at the hands of Roma.

Chelsea’s form has been up and down of late and their defence has certainly left a thing or two to be desired – and now it seems that Conte is hitting back at the players and has told them this must be a one off – and they must do far better in the future.

The Blues face former manager Jose Mourinho this weekend when they take on Manchester United – and Conte knows another defensive performance like it will only see three more points dropped and more questions asked of his side.

The Italian was not happy – and claimed that while the first half was unfair on the club, the second half was something they deserved.

 “We must find the hunger we showed last season. When you lose 3-0, it means it wasn’t a good performance. Our first half was good, we created many chances to score, but to be 2-0 down was unfair.

“But in the second half, it was a really bad performance. Roma showed more will to fight and more desire to win the game.

“I’m very disappointed with our second half. For this performance, we all have to take responsibility.

“When you concede three goals, you must be worried. It means something doesn’t work. It’s very difficult now, but we have to analyse the game. We need to work on the tactical aspect.

“We are working less on this aspect this season. We have to look at ourselves. Tonight was a bad night for us. Just one night, I hope.

“Manchester United are a very good team but we have to find the strength to understand and to use this loss in the right way because we have to dig very deep this season if we want to fight for something.

“If we are not ready to dig deep we can have this type of game. This season will be very difficult if we don’t understand very quickly the right way to go.”
