Nollywood star Segun Arinze and comedian Akpororo are of the opinion that Chelsea are almost certain of finishing in the Premier League top four as any chances of climbing up the Premier League table were extinguished by the 1-0 defeat the Blues suffered against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Arinze and Akpororo spoke exclusively to Completesportsnigeria.com on Sunday.
“What is happening to Chelsea is to say the least surprising. As it is now, Chelsea can only play in the Champions League next season by winning it this season but can they do it with the way things are panning out? I don’t know,” Arinze said.
“Chelsea have the players but we do not know what the problem is but I do not support calls for Jose Mourinho’s sacking now.
“Rather than thinking of any sacking, the management of the club, coaches and players need to solve whatever is the problem internally. There seems to be an internal strife at the club. The players lack passion and commitment.”
Newly wedded comedian Akpororo added:
“If you told me before the season started that things would go like this, I wouldn’t believe it. During the pre-season friendlies Chelsea were losing but Jose Mourinho kept telling us that results in friendlies did not matter. See where we are now. Yes, I hope they win the Champions League.”
