Perhaps the most disappointing aspect of Chelsea’s previous campaign was their inability to qualify for any kind of European football.
The Premier League Champion’s of 2014/15 slumped to their worst ever league finish as they placed a dismal 10th position, 12 points behind their closet hope of European football – West Ham in 7th place.
While the campaign will most likely not dampen the clubs reputation as one of the biggest and best in Europe, the absence of football on the continent presents some of its own problems that the Blue’s will have to tackle this coming summer.
Not only will it be difficult for Chelsea to attract the biggest names in Europe to make the switch to Stamford Bridge, it could be that a number of their own look for pastures new also as they search for football at the highest level.
Incoming manager Antonio Conte may do something to mitigate the damage – with many current a new players sure to be keen to player under the charismatic Italian – however whether or not he can hold on to his biggest stars is a another question.
These THREE Chelsea players should really be playing at a Champions League club next season according to our landlord, do you agree?
