Graeme Souness reckons Chelsea need to improve their midfield with Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho bordering “on five-a-side players”.
The duo started in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Lille in the Champions League group stage that secured their progress to the last-16 of the competition.
N’Golo Kante, who Souness thinks is a “good” player also featured, but the former Liverpool midfielder said he would be rubbing his hands if he lined up against Kovacic and Jorginho.
“I think the midfield is lacking,” Souness told Virgin Media Sport.
“I like Kante, we speak about him every time we see him about how good he is. But I think Kovacic and Jorginho border on five-a-side players.
“If I’m a midfielder and I’m in the tunnel with Kovacic and Jorginho as my opponents, I’m licking my lips. I’d want to play against them.
“I wouldn’t want to play against Kante. I’d want to play against them.”
