At Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, Chelsea were beaten by Basel. Our famous coach, Jose Mourinho, came out with an excuse that the present Chelsea squad is not mature.
Of course, looking at it, the Chelsea squad is not a mature one. We
have a lot of youngsters who are below age 25 which is okay. But what keeps coming to my mind is that most of the players in this squad were present last season and it was a story of sucess, and they weren't mature.
I don't think it is a matter of maturity that is happening at Chelsea. What
we need is something extra that we are not giving now - one splitting
pass, one intelligent finishing, one better player (Mata) at the right
time. That is what we need at this stage of the club.
You might say I am not a coach so I don't have guts to say this. I
know. We are Chelsea and what we are known for is winning at all cost.
We told Benitez that and he delivered it. And I think it is time to
remind Mourinho who we are 'cause we are losing our identity.
