Nothing in their hearts – Chelsea legend slammed Players for their performance against Burnley

Chelsea legend Frank Leboeuf has slammed the players for their performance in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Burnley and says he is ‘appalled’ by the state of the club.

The Blues looked to be set for a comfortable win at Stamford Bridge when Lorenz Assignon conceded a penalty and was shown a second yellow card shortly before half-time – with manager Vincent Kompany also dismissed – before Cole Palmer slotted home with a cheeky Panenka.

But Josh Cullen levelled moments after the restart and despite Palmer bagging a second goal, Dara O’Shea equalised again late on – and Burnley even rattled the woodwork at the death.

The result leaves Chelsea closer to the relegation zone than the top four, still marooned in 11th place, and Leboeuf was absolutely livid with what he saw, slamming the players and branding them ‘unprofessional’.

Asked to sum up Chelsea’s latest display and the state of the club in general, Leboeuf said on ESPN: ‘My God, I’m fed up. You [want to] believe that something is going to happen.

‘Okay, the season is already over, but you’re playing against Burnley, they play 11 against 10, so they’re going to win… and then they disappear.

‘Nothing happens, you are 1-0 at half-time, you come back and after three minutes concede a goal, then you try to play a little bit and score another goal and then say “Okay, well that’s fine” and then after it’s terrible.

‘And in the end, they should have lost that game, 11 against 10. Chelsea football club against – with all due respect – Burnley. That’s the end of it, for me, that’s the end of it.

‘I want to congratulate the fans on still being able to go to Stamford Bridge to watch that. I mean, come on!

‘That’s not fair for the fans, that’s not fair for the history of Chelsea football club and for the former players – that I am, and some others that are watching that, and are so appalled by the situation.

‘It’s unfair to all those people and I don’t know what they [the owners and the players] are doing there.

‘The players have no stamina, nothing in their heart, nothing in their brain, don’t know what to do.

‘If you play 11 against 10 you should thrash that team that you play against, yet they let them come back and they almost lost. Come on! That’s unprofessional. That’s unfair, again, to the people who love the club.’
