Chelsea winger Noni Madueke has come under heavy criticism from Chelsea winger Frank Leboeuf following his performance in Chelsea’s Carabao Cup first-leg defeat to Middlesbrough.

“They don’t know how to croas the ball, they don’t know how to play one-twos or with pace in the game, when they have some chances to go or it, they go back,” Leboeuf said.

“It is like the coach told me to not lose the ball and not risk anything, maybe it’s that. Madueke at one point, he made the cross where we could see there was no Chelsea player in the 16-yard box. But he made it.

“The last time I saw that I was 14 years old in my village where you don’t know what to do with the ball so you cross it and you don’t care about it.

“The guy is a professional player, it means he crossed by instinct, he doesn’t know what he does, he does not inform himself on what he has to do. That is absolutely appalling.

“It’s not just him, they are all the same. It is amazing.”
