Benoit Badiashile has rejected suggestions that the ongoing 2023-24 football season can be a transitional one for Chelsea, and insisted that the Blues can still turn things around and win trophies.

Chelsea, who finished the 2022-23 campaign in the bottom half of the Premier League table, are currently 11th on the log, after seven games.

“Transition? No. You can’t have a transition season at a club like Chelsea. It’s impossible,” Badiashile told Sky Sports.

“Everything that is important about a club is winning. You hear things about it being a year to get to know each other and develop together but no, because you’re at a club where the results come before anything.

“This still isn’t a transition season because there are still so many games to compete for titles and I don’t believe that.”
