Scolari lifts lid on antics of star Chelsea trio

Former Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has slated Didier Drogba, Petr Cech and Michael Ballack for their apparent lack of commitment during his time in charge.

He told O Globo: "Drogba appeared with a muscular contusion and said he required two months to take care of it... in Cannes!

"And Ballack, alleging he had chronic pains in the soles of his feet, asked to go to Cologne.

"With Cech, there was another problem. He had a personal trainer for goalies but only for himself and I was totally against this.

"Look, the goalie trainer has to train ALL the goalies of the group, not only one.

"He became furious and began to treat me coldly. In the dressing room it immediately became apparent I had strong opposition.

"And they ended up backed by the directors of Chelsea."
