We need to get back on a good path – Cahill
Chelsea skipper, Gary Cahill acknowledges that the League Champions are at an ugly crossroads at the moment and must get back to their usual self as soon as possible.
The Champions recently suffered consecutive defeats in the league conceding an outrageous seven goals in the process as they went from losing 3-0 to Bournemouth to a 4-1 loss to Watford the last time out.
The captain admits that rumours as to the position of the Manager is been heard even within the club but he asserts that the team knows what to do to get back on a good path.
While speaking with Sky Sports, the England International said: “We are at that road where you can either turn left or right. We are on a road where the sooner we have the opportunity to go down the right path the better because drawing on past experiences you have that feeling it’s bubbling outside the club,”
“In the club, we are fine in terms of a tight group and everyone is together; there is no falling-out or clashes with the manager. We are fine, but we need to get back on that good path as soon as we possibly can.”
The embarrassing defeat to Watford dropped them to 4th place, 19 points behind league leaders and one point above fifth-placed Spurs with Arsenal closely behind in sixth, as the race for the top four gains momentum.
Cahill himself was honest with his display as he stated that it will certainly be one of his worst displays for the club but believes that every member of the team is ready to put in the required work to get back to their best.
“I didn’t recognize us, I didn’t recognize myself in that performance, I am sure on reflection the lads would say the same,” he continued.
“That was one of the worst performances of my career. But you are talking about one game, so as well as being harsh on ourselves, and rightly so, it’s one game.
“We have had two bad results, which has caused a bit of atmosphere outside of the club, but it is only two results.
“It’s very hard to ever criticize our squad in terms of work-rate or commitment. Is it a confidence thing? I don’t know. For whatever reason, that happened. But that’s football as well.” He concluded
