Chelsea Stamford Bride

A round up of news stories this morning related to Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has explained via FourFourTwo that his side simply weren’t good enough in the game against PSG.

The French side went through to the last eight of the competition after a 2-2 draw which saw them prevail via away goals over the course of the tie.

Mourinho was left frustrated by the result and implied the defeat was down to his side not being up for the task.

“Clearly [PSG were worthy]. Opponent was stronger than us, coped better. Our performance was not good enough,” he said.

Mourinho has also been quoted by Goal suggesting that former defender David Luiz should be banned.

Luiz reportedly landed an elbow on striker Diego Costa during the game, which Mourinho says would warrant punishment.

Luiz moved to PSG in a high profile moved which was criticised for its £50 million price tag.

“The David [Luiz] elbow I didn't see, but when Uefa gives him the Man of the Match I have to believe there is no elbow,” said the boss.

PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has branded Chelsea’s stars ‘babies’ in the Metro for the way they behaved during the Champions League game last night.

The big centre forward was sent off during the game and was annoyed by the way Chelsea’s players reacted.

Chelsea went out of the competition last night after PSG went through on away goals.

“When I got the red card all the Chelsea players come around. It felt like I had a babies around me,” he said.
