Jose Mourinho has launched a scathing public attack on his players, threatening to drop them all in favour of Chelsea's kids if they continue to under perform.
The Blues scraped a 2-2 draw at lacklustre Newcastle at the weekend, and still sit in the bottom half of the table after seven games.
Speaking this week, the Chelsea manager said: "I have to do both things - to try and prepare the kids for their future and at the same time to try and bring the best out of the other players, the players with more stability and experience."
"But if the season goes in one direction that it becomes closed, and we can't win, I will go just with the kids." adding "I can arrive in a moment where I will look to the kids and say, 'let's go, non-stop.' I am ruthless."
Mourinho didn't hold back when asked about the problems which his Chelsea side face either: "We have no problems physically. Clearly it's an attitude perspective of some individuals."
By the sounds of it if Chelsea don't start pulling some results out the bag some of their stars may as well hang their boots up for the season. What do you think Chelsea fans, is he right to criticise his team publicly?
