first_imgChelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo slammed his side’s shoddy defending following their 4-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup.The Blues were 3-0 down at half-time after a stunning hat-trick from Radamel Falcao, who produced a breathtaking display of class and finishing.And Di Matteo told ITV: “In the first half we were very poor and they were very sharp. We were very slow and sloppy and were penalised.“We tried, but they were much better than us – especially in the first half. We gave him [Falcao] too much space and you can’t give him that, because he’s too dangerous.”He added: “We’ve got a lot to learn and have got to get much better. It’s a shame we have not been competitive in a European final.“But we’ll bounce back. It was a bad defeat today but we’ve had some good games before. We just didn’t play well tonight at all.“We gave away three goals and you can’t do that against a team like Atletico Madrid.”See also:Chelsea swept aside by brilliant FalcaoFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
