The Blues won last ¬≠season‚Äôs Champions League, but Argentine midfielder Aimar says times have changed.
‚ÄúOf course, Chelsea are a big club, but this is not the same team that won the Champions League a year ago,‚ÄĚ said the 33-year-old. ‚ÄúThis team got knocked out at the group stages. They have not been ¬≠convincing in ¬≠Europe or in the Premier League.
‚ÄúSince they have inherited a wealthy owner, this is probably the weakest Chelsea team there has been.
‚ÄúAnd it is a team that is not behind the coach. We can take advantage of the fact they are not at their best and not playing as a team.
‚ÄúChelsea lost two great players in ¬≠Didier Drogba and Michael Essien.
‚ÄúIt is amazing how much a team can change in 12 months, but that is ¬≠football,‚ÄĚ Aimar added.
