Frank Lebouef has called for changes at Chelsea and has accused the players of disrespect to the club.
Chelsea were thrashed 4-0 at Manchester City in the FA Cup’s third round on Sunday, a result which continued the club’s poor form under Graham Potter.
The west Londoners have now won just one of their past eight games in all competitions and are tenth in the Premier League table, ten points adrift of the top four.
The club’s former defender, Lebouef, has launched a scathing attack on the current squad and has called for Potter to make changes to address the Blues’ woeful form.
Lebouef called out the Chelsea players for showing ‘disrespect’ to the club and fans with their performances and said the squad are lacking ‘courage’ and ‘pride’.
“Mr Potter, enough is enough now, something needs to be changed,” Lebeouf told ESPN.
“That’s not the club I know. You are so far away from being a champion of Europe.
“I’m very upset with what I see. I think it’s really disrespectful. They don’t do anything to at least make people proud. Fight! Go for it!
“I’ve never seen Chelsea so low. The players don’t have the will, they don’t have the guts, they don’t have the courage to fight for their colours. They don’t have pride.
“The players who are forming the spine, they are shameful. They do nothing. I don’t know what Kai Havertz is doing. Mason, I love you, but come on! I don’t know what Jorginho is doing on the pitch still.
“I see players convinced of nothing and proving nothing. They showed disrespect toward the fans and Chelsea Football Club. I’m talking about so-called leaders, not the young players.”
