Chelsea players are reportedly unhappy with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte according to a report on The Times.
The report claims the players are unhappy with the intensity Conte’s training methods and the fact it has not relented this season despite Chelsea’s busy schedule.
The Times claim that many Chelsea players believe Conte’s physically demanding [training] sessions, lots of tactical meetings and very few days off are causing Chelsea’s current fitness concerns and affecting Chelsea’s form.
Chelsea lost back-to-back Premier League games against Manchester City and Crystal Palace and squandered a two-goal lead against Roma on Wednesday before drawing 3-3.
Chelsea have been badly hit by injuries this season. Alvaro Morata returned from a hamstring problem against Roma, but recent knocks to N’Golo Kante, Victor Moses, David Luiz and Tiemoue Bakayoko could see them all absent for Saturday’s clash with Watford.
The report also insists Chelsea players are supportive of Conte but are keen for him to alter his methods to prevent fatigue.
