Marcel Desailly fears new Chelsea coach Avram Grant will struggle to build the love and respect that was afforded to Jose Mourinho by the current Blues stars.

Desailly told BBC Radio Five Live´s Sportsweek: "Mourinho was really loved by the players. When I spoke to them they were always talking about Mourinho and the way he protected them when they were in trouble. He knew how to motivate them.

"Grant will have a different approach. He maybe will not be loved by the players like Mourinho, but at least he will try to ensure they are professional for them to perform on the pitch."
