Chelsea morning news: Blues blamed for Egypt loss, Remy's statement of intent

Stamford Bridge Inside

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

Chelsea have been blamed for Egypt’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Senegal.

Egypt boss Shawky Gharib has out the defeat down to the way Mohamed Salah has been used at Stamford Bridge.

“The poor fitness of the players, especially Chelsea’s Mohamed Salah, is also a reason for the loss. The Egyptian league hasn't started yet and also Salah didn’t play regularly with Chelsea. If Salah is off-form, Egypt's performance is always affected,” he told reporters.

Loic Remy says he didn’t sign for Chelsea just to sit on the bench.

Remy joined the weekend before the summer transfer deadline and he could soon see regular game time as Diego Costa burses a hamstring problem.

“I didn’t sign for them in order to sit on the bench. I will try to improve as much as I can alongside their great players, and the rest will happen naturally,” he’s quoted by the Mirror.

Andre Schurrle says he’s treated differently at Chelsea after winning the World Cup with Germany.

Schurrle played a key part in his national side’s success in Brazil earlier this summer.

“When I returned to Chelsea, I noticed that players treated me differently. One becomes more self-confident,” said the German.
