Chelsea has leadership issue - Wayne Bridge

Former Chelsea man Wayne Bridge has made his opinion known about Chelsea and he thinks lack of leadership on the side has been a big problem.

Since Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and John Terry all left the London side, many will agree that the team has lack a good leader to lead the side on the field and all Chelsea's new signings have not been able to reciprocate any of this players character.

Though Diego Costa was a good leader for the team last season as he was always seen motivating his fellow teammates to push forward and concentrate on the game, he was sold back to Atletico Madrid during the January transfer window after Conte revealed he was not in his plan for the new season.

In an interview with Sky Sport, Bridge reveal this issue and also speak about United chances of winning the FA Cup instead of Chelsea.

'When I think back to that time, I think of a whole team of leaders, we had Michael Ballack, Didier Drogba, Claude Makelele, John Terry, Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole... the list goes on, but times have changed,' he said

'I think there is definitely a leadership problem, 100 percent, I look at Chelsea now and I don't see a lot of leaders. I think it's something they need to address if they are going to compete for titles. They need to spend money and look to bring in those types of players.'

'Not just good quality players, but players who have got a bit of character, players who can lead the team through difficult moments. You don't just want one player leading the team. A major party of being successful is having a group of players who can provide leadership.'

Do you think Bridge is right about the Chelsea squad?
