“Friends still inside the club” – Former Chelsea captain reveals ‘biggest issue’ at Chelsea

Chelsea are very much stuck in a rut right now, and it’s a very toxic feel amongst the fanbase and around the club.

Everyone has their opinions on what is wrong and what is right, and many fans this week have been calling for Graham Potter to be sacked. Yet through the media at least, the club have been fully backing Potter this week through briefings.

But former Chelsea captain Frank Leboeuf believes that there is an issue still at the club that has been around for a long time, and is actually nothing to do with any manager.

Leboeuf believes that there is still a lack of strong mentalities in this Chelsea squad and a lack of leadership and experience.

The former Blue turned ESPN pundit has penned his latest exclusive column for Si & Dan Talk Chelsea this week, and as ever, he wore his heart on his sleeve on a number of subjects.

Leboeuf said: “The biggest issue we definitely have is lack of strong mentalities still in the squad. I have friends still inside the club who have been working very close to the players. And apart from Cesar Azpilicueta, there are no leaders. Thiago Silva is a technical leader but he doesn’t talk that much in the dressing room. Azpilicueta is the kind of player from my generation in the way that he is fighting for the club that he plays for, not only for himself.”


  1. Well Frank couldn’t head a ball, he changes like the wind and has called for Potter to be sacked, so why does he not stick to poor acting, and either support chelsea or go away?

    1. Frank wasa class player for Chelsea and he still has the clubs interests at heart. He is right we dont have fighters in the team apart from Kovacic and Kante when hes fit. Connor Gallagher gives his all and will turn into a great player for chelsea. but there too many that turn up for the money and dont care. We play spurs next and they are 4th in the table. In the past it wouln’t matter we were tenth and they were 4th we would be desperate to beat them. This weekend there will be Reece, Chillers, Mason, And Challbough that will want it bad. The rest ??? I am being harsh on some players but we will see

    2. he wouldnt have let spurs beat us at the weekend. I donrt give a stuff about his acting hes still a blue
