After Chelsea’s shocking defeat to Burnley, vice-captain Cesar Azpilicueta has admitted that the Chelsea squad needs to be strengthened and that the club is working on bringing new players before the transfer window closes.
“When you see the players we have lost and the players we have signed, they are not the same,” said Azpilicueta as quoted by The Mirror in the aftermath of the defeat to Burnley.
He continued: “Obviously, we have very good young players, but we have to know the reality that being champions is even harder the next season – we have experience of that.
“So we need players — also for the development of the young players. They need help from senior players, from top players. Not to rush them in a position where maybe they are not ready to go at the moment, but they will be in the future.
“It is something the club is working on with the manager, and hopefully we can get new signings in the next few weeks.”
