Gary Cahill has admitted John Terry was right to blast Chelsea's players for their alarming slump after revealing the squad were at a loss to explain it.
Blues captain Terry used his programme notes for Wednesday night's Champions League game with FC Nordsjaelland to brand results during his injury absence as "simply not good enough", demanding more "fight and desire" from his team-mates following a six-match winless run he dubbed the worst of his entire Stamford Bridge career.
Cahill acknowledged the public dressing downs were warranted, and he said: "If there's a time where it needs to be done then, sure, it's a positive, as long as it's taken in the right way. You have to dig in as a group. That's the only way you can go forward."
