Former Chelsea captain Marcel Desailly has slammed his old club over this season's Champions League flop.

Chelsea delivered the worst campaign as a defending champion in the competition's history.

Desailly told The Sun: "They are out of the Champions League this season having made basic mistakes especially against Juventus.

"As the defending champions I expected them to show a different collective attitude. But when strikers don't score and you have internal problems it makes things difficult when you are playing at such a high level as the Champions League."
