Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has come forward to comment on Chelsea’s horror start to the 2015-16 season and issued a response in contrary to Fabregas claims that the players are responsible for the poor run of form.
Yesterday, it was Cesc Fabregas who gave his opinion on the current struggles of Chelsea and blames it on the lack of commitment from the players, but the 29-year old defender has a different say on the matter.
“We are not ROBOTS” says the experienced defender and insists that one cannot expect them to perform every week. The Blues are 16th in the league table with one point keeping them clear out of the relegation zone.
Already 16 games into the season, the Blues have managed just 4 wins and Cahill is still confident that the team can turn their fortunes.
“You’re not a robot, you’re not going to be nine out of 10 every game.” Cahill commented while talking to Chelsea magazine.
“But when things aren’t going well, you work even harder and look for a reaction. I’m sure we’ll turn it around.”
On the contrary, it was a consistent performance that had propelled this very team to the top of the table last season and this season has been a striking contrast.
Head Coach Jose Mourinho is getting frustrated with some of the players and went on to state that this current Chelsea squad is at same level as that of Sunderland.
“There are some great memories and I don’t think we should forget the manner in which we won the Premier League, leading from the start, which was an unbelievable achievement for everyone at the club,”
“The flip side, as always with football, is that it’s a game of two halves – and we’ve had a difficult period. Last season was fantastic, this season has been tough, but we’re looking to turn that around. We’re working hard to make things right.”
“Not every single minute of your career will go well, individually and collectively, and not every season will go how you want it to, but it’s how you react to that.”
Jose Mourinho and his men will host fellow relegation candidates Sunderland on Sunday with eyes set on all three points. This will be followed up by a home game against Watford before travelling to Old Trafford for the high profile clash against another struggling big guns Manchester United to wrap-up this year’s round of fixtures.
