Former Chelsea star says "Don't blame the manager"

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Bosnich believes that certain players in the squad need to shoulder the blame for this season’s poor results and that manager Carlo Ancelotti is not wholly to blame for the lack of trophies. In fact he thinks it’s time to stop blaming all the various managers that have managed the Blues over the years and look somewhere else.

Ancelotti has been under pressure after his side were knocked out of the Champions League the FA Cup and conceded the Premier League in a tepid first-half display against United on Sunday.

Speaking to TalkSport Radio Bosnich said about Chelsea: “They are going to have to have serious look at their squad and where they go in the future. There does seem to be some sort of problem there that you can’t put your finger on. Everyone always points there finger towards the manager but let’s not forget they’ve had four or five managers in the last five or six years”.

He continued: “Sometimes when you keep changing the manager and things like this still occur then maybe it’s not manager that’s the problem, maybe it’s certain members of the footballing team”.

It is doubtful that Roman Abramovich will listen to Bosnich’s advice and will forge ahead with his rumoured plans to replace Ancelotti when the season ends. Names that have been mentioned include Guus Hiddink, Marco Van Basten or Porto’s Andre Villas Boas.
