The Blues lost 3-0 to Bayern Munich at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
A brace from Serge Gnabry and one from Robert Lewandowski in the second half sealed an emphatic win for the Bundesliga giants.
Chelsea legend Joe Cole has blamed Marina Granovskaia and the Chelsea hierarchy for the defeat to Bayern Munich.
According to Cole, Chelsea’s failure to strengthen in January affected the performance of the team.
“I think knowing this game was on the horizon, Frank would have been desperate to get players through the door,” Cole said on BT Sport.
“You’ve asked Giroud, who’s done brilliant for you at the weekend, he’s not been fit and a 32-year-old striker to come and lead the line against probably one of the best sides in Europe as the moment, it just looked like he ran out of steam towards the end.
“So not recruiting has definitely affected the performance and the team.
“Bayern Munich were sublime from start to finish.
“We talked about the patterns of play, the passing, they just really drilled Chelsea tonight and it’s a momentous task for them going to Germany.”
