The Blues have been overwhelmed Four-1 on combination by Barcelona, regardless of two optimistic performances of their spherical of 16 matches.
And Andy Jacobs, one half of Hawksbee and Jacobs – on talkSPORT each weekday from 1pm-4pm – has insisted they may have performed higher had it not been for Conte.
Interviewed by co-host Paul Hawksbee following the ultimate whistle on Wednesday evening, he slammed the Italian coach and needs him out of Stamford Bridge.
“In the two games, Chelsea were by far the better team,” Jacobs stated.
“We gave them 4 objectives – you’ll be able to’t give Barcelona 4 objectives. We hit the woodwork 5 instances, had a blatant penalty denied at 2-Zero [in the second leg] which may have modified the sport.
“That was regardless of [Antonio] Conte not due to him.
“The only way Chelsea players can do any good this season is to defy Conte because his instructions, his substitutions, his ideas, and his whole demeanour are a complete disaster. I can’t wait for him to go.”
