Frank Leboeuf hits out at "lack of respect" from Chelsea players

Jose Mourinho Frank Leboeuf believes Chelsea stars and Antonio Conte have packed it in to hurry up Italian's departure: 'It is a lack of respect for the fans and the club'

The former Italy manager's future is under intense scrutiny at this stage, with the likes of Massimiliano Allegri and Luis Enrique linked with moves to become the next Chelsea manager.

Sky Sports speculate that Chelsea academy product Callum Hudson-Odoi could be in line for his first Premier League start, as the Premier League champions' Champions League dreams fade further away from reality.

Conte was asked for his response to comments this week by his former Juventus team-mate Gianluca Vialli, also a former Chelsea manager. He was a legend for this club and an ambassador for football.

Leboeuf was speaking after Sunday's 3-1 loss to Tottenham, a defeat that severely harmed the Chelsea's chances of finishing in the top-four, with the gap to fourth-placed Spurs now extended to eight points.

"For sure, I predicted this season that it would be very hard for me", he said, ahead of this weekend's clash with relegation-threatened West Ham. "The other situations are not true".

However, the UCL victor with Juventus has denied those talks and says he is looking to make the team better for next season. "Those who know me very well know I am trying to put all of myself to change this situation because I have a great responsibility".

"In this league, we have this problem: to understand the humour of the players".

"It was tragic news for us", he said.

Leboeuf has claimed that everyone associated with the club are being shown "a lack of respect" by the players, saying that most seasons after a title win end up in "a mess". "Tottenham was a bad defeat". "Gianluca is a friend but I have not talked with him for one year".

"I think on Sunday (against West Ham) we must be ready to make a great memory to Ray", he added.

"We have to try to do everything to try to continue to have the possibility to fight for a place in the Champions League". "This will be very important, and then after is the game to play".
