Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has described the Blues’ season as ‘not good at all’ but he insists they will ‘go again next season’.
Last season’s Premier League champions endured a miserable start to the campaign and ended up sacking manager Jose Mourinho in December after losing nine of their first 16 games.
Guus Hiddink was brought in on an interim basis for the remainder of the season, while Antonio Conte will take charge as coach this summer.
Chelsea ended up finishing the season in tenth place and Cahill admits the campaign was a failure.
He told the club’s website: “The season was not good at all, it was obviously disappointing and it didn’t go to plan for us. But all we can do now is go again next season.
“We know it is unacceptable for a club like Chelsea to have a season like we have had this year.”
The England international has vowed to help the team improve for 2015-16 and they will use the bad memories of this season to inspire them to do much better in future.
He added: “We take this bad taste in the mouth into next year because we don’t want to have it again.
“We don’t want to have a period of playing football matches for nothing. It is the worst feeling ever so we need to remember this time.
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and we need to be stronger for this.”
