Chelsea defender Ivanovic warns teammates to get tough
LONDON (AFP) - Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has warned his teammates that the European champions are in danger of becoming a soft touch this season.
Ivanovic was left frustrated after Roberto Di Matteo's side blew a two-goal lead to Juventus in the midweek Champions League draw with the Italian club.
Stoke's visit to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday provides Chelsea with an early opportunity to remedy the defensive lapses that contributed to their failure to make a winning start to their Champions League defence.
Those deficiencies were also exposed by Atletico Madrid in the 4-1 European Super Cup defeat.
