Piazon hits out at Chelsea team-mates

Published 25 Comments

Chelsea's Lucas Piazon has criticised his team-mates' attitude during Sunday's Club World Cup final defeat to Corinthians, claiming his fellow Brazilians were the only ones to have put in the required effort.

Chelsea went down 1-0 in Yokohama and Piazon, an unused substitute in the match, hit out at an "unacceptable" lack of fight shown by Rafael Benitez's team.

Speaking to Brazilian website UOL Esporte, Piazon said: "A lot of us were missing the desire to be champion. I think Ramires and David Luiz, the Brazilians were the ones who gave the most, and now they are sad."
